Installation

Berkshelf is now included as part of the Chef-DK. This is fastest, easiest, and the recommended installation method for getting up and running with Berkshelf.

note: You may need to uninstall the Berkshelf gem especially if you are using a Ruby version manager you may need to uninstall all Berkshelf gems from each Ruby installation.

From Rubygems

If you are a developer or you prefer to install from Rubygems, we've got you covered.

Add Berkshelf to your repository's Gemfile:

gem 'berkshelf'

Or run it as a standalone:

$ gem install berkshelf

Usage

See docs.chef.io for up-to-date usage instructions.

CLI Usage

Berkshelf is intended to be used as a CLI tool. It is not intended to be used as a library. Other ruby code should shell out to the command line tool to use it.

Supported Platforms

Berkshelf is tested and supported on Ruby 2.3 and 2.4.

Configuration

Berkshelf will search in specific locations for a configuration file. In order:

$PWD/.berkshelf/config.json
~/.berkshelf/config.json

You are encouraged to keep project-specific configuration in the $PWD/.berkshelf directory. A default configuration file is generated for you, but you can update the values to suit your needs.
