Usage

freebsd::portsnap

This recipe ensures the Ports Collection collection is fully up to date.

This recipe should appear first in the run list of FreeBSD nodes to ensure that the package cache is up to date before managing any package resources with Chef.

Resources

port_options

Provides an easy way to set port options from within a cookbook.

It can be used in two different ways:

  • template-based: specifying a source will write it to the correct destination with no change;
  • options hash: if a options hash is passed instead, it will be merged on top of default and current options, and the result will be written back.

Note that the options hash take simple options names as keys and a boolean as value; when saving to file, this is converted to the format that FreeBSD ports expect:

Option Key Name Option Value Options File
APACHE true WITH_APACHE=true
APACHE false WITHOUT_APACHE=true

Actions

Action Description Default
create create the port options file according to the given options Yes

Properties

Property Description
name The name of the port whose options file you want to manipulate;
source if the property is set, it will be used to look up a template, which will then be saved as a port options file
options a hash with the option name as the key, and a boolean as value.

Examples

# freebsd-php5-options will be written out as /var/db/ports/php5/options
freebsd_port_options 'php5' do
  source 'freebsd-php5-options.erb'
  action :create
end

# Default options will be read from /usr/ports/lang/php5;
# current options from /var/db/ports/php5/options (if exists);
# the APACHE options will be set to true, the others will be unchanged
freebsd_port_options 'php5' do
  options 'APACHE' => true
  action :create
end
