Habitat Cookbook

Build Status Cookbook Version

This cookbook provides resources for working with Habitat. It is intended that these resources will be included in core Chef at some point in the future, so it is important to note:

  • APIs are subject to change
  • Habitat is a rapidly changing product, and this cookbook may change rapidly as well

(this is a pre-1.0 version, after all)

Requirements

Platforms

  • RHEL 6+
  • Ubuntu 14.04+
  • Debian 7+

Habitat

  • Habitat version: 0.59.0

This cookbook is developed lockstep with the latest release of Habitat to ensure compatibility, going forward from 0.33.0 of the cookbook and 0.33.2 of Habitat itself. When new versions of Habitat are released, the version should be updated in these files:

  • README.md: note required version in this file
  • resources/install.rb: set the default to the new version
  • test/integration/install/default_spec.rb: to match the version from the resource

Additionally, new versions must be tested that all behavior in the cookbook still works, otherwise the cookbook must be updated to match the behavior in the new version of Habitat.

Users who wish to install a specific version of Habitat should use an older (0.28 or earlier) release of this cookbook, but note that is unsupported and they are advised to upgrade ASAP.

Chef

  • Chef 12.20.3+

Cookbooks

  • None

Resources

hab_install

Installs Habitat on the system using the install script.

Actions

  • install: Installs Habitat. Does nothing if the hab binary is found in the default location for the system (/bin/hab on Linux, /usr/local/bin/hab on macOS)
  • upgrade: Installs the latest version of Habitat, does not check if the binary exists

Properties

  • install_url: URL to the install script, default is from the habitat repo
  • bldr_url: Optional URL to an alternate Builder (defaults to the public Builder)
  • channel: The release channel to install from (defaults to stable)
  • create_user: Creates the hab system user (defaults to true)
  • tmp_dir: Sets TMPDIR environment variable for location to place temp files. (required if /tmp and /var/tmp are mounted noexec)

Examples

Nameless installation

hab_install

Instalaltion specifying a bldr URL

hab_install 'install habitat' do
  bldr_url 'http://localhost'
end

hab_package

Install the specified Habitat package. Requires that Habitat is installed

actions

  • install: installs the specified package
  • upgrade: aliased to install

Properties

  • package_name: A Habitat package name, must include the origin and package name separated by /, for example, core/redis
  • version: A Habitat version which contains the version and optionally a release separated by /, for example, 3.2.3 or 3.2.3/20160920131015
  • bldr_url: The habitat builder url where packages will be downloaded from (defaults to public habitat builder)
  • channel: The release channel to install from (defaults to stable)

While it is valid to pass the version and release with a Habitat package as a fully qualified package identifier when using the hab CLI, they must be specified using the version property when using this resource. See the examples below.

Examples

hab_package 'core/redis'

hab_package 'core/redis' do
  version '3.2.3'
  channel 'unstable'
end

hab_package 'core/redis' do
  version '3.2.3/20160920131015'
end

hab_service

Manages a Habitat application service using hab sup/hab service. This requires that core/hab-sup be running as a service. See the hab_sup resource documentation below for more information about how to set that up with this cookbook.

Note: Applications may run as a specific user. Often with Habitat, the default is hab, or root. If the application requires another user, then it should be created with Chef's user resource.

Actions

  • :load: (default action) runs hab service load to load and start the specified application service
  • :unload: runs hab service unload to unload and stop the specified application service
  • :start: runs hab service start to start the specified application service
  • :stop: runs hab service stop to stop the specified application service

Properties

Some properties are only valid for start or load actions. See the description of each option for indication which action(s) the property is used. This is because the underlying hab sup commands have different options available in their context.

  • service_name: name property, the name of the service, must be in the form of origin/name
  • loaded: state property indicating whether the service is loaded in the supervisor
  • running: state property indicating whether the service is running in the supervisor
  • permanent_peer: Only valid for :start action, passes --permanent-peer to the hab command
  • listen_gossip: Only valid for :start action, passes --listen-gossip with the specified address and port, e.g., 0.0.0.0:9638, to the hab command
  • listen_http: Only valid for :start action, passes --listen-http with the specified address and port, e.g., 0.0.0.0:9631, to the hab command
  • org: Only valid for :start action, passes --org with the specified org name to the hab command
  • peer: Only valid for :start action, passes --peer with the specified initial peer to the hab command
  • ring: Only valid for :start action, passes --ring with the specified ring key name to the hab command
  • strategy: Only valid for :start or :load actions, passes --strategy with the specified update strategy to the hab command
  • topology: Only valid for :start or :load actions, passes --topology with the specified service topology to the hab command
  • bldr_url: Only valid for :start or :load actions, passes --url with the specified Builder URL to the hab command. For local repos, use 'local'.
  • bind: Only valid for :start or :load actions, passes --bind with the specified services to bind to the hab command
  • service_group: Only valid for :start or :load actions, passes --group with the specified service group to the hab command
  • config_from: Only valid for :start action, passes --config-from with the specified directory to the hab command
  • override_name: Advanced Use Valid for all actions, passes --override-name with the specified name to the hab command; used for running services in multiple supervisors
  • channel: Only valid for :start or :load actions, passes --channel with the specified channel to the hab command

Examples

# install and load nginx
hab_package 'core/nginx'
hab_service 'core/nginx'

hab_service 'core/nginx unload' do
  service_name 'core/nginx'
  action :unload
end

# pass the strategy and topology options to hab service commands (load by default)
hab_service 'core/redis' do
  strategy 'rolling'
  topology 'standalone'
end

If the service has it's own user specified that is not the hab user, don't create the hab user on install, and instead create the application user with Chef's user resource

hab_install 'install habitat' do
  create_user false
end

user 'acme-apps' do
  system true
end

hab_service 'acme/apps'

hab_sup

Runs a Habitat Supervisor for one or more Habitat Services. It is used in conjunction with hab_service which will manage the services loaded and started within the supervisor.

The run action handles installing Habitat using the hab_install resource, ensures that the core/hab-sup package is installed using hab_package, and then drops off the appropriate init system definitions and manages the service.

Actions

  • run: starts the hab-sup service

Properties

  • bldr_url: The Builder URL for the hab_package resource, if needed
  • permanent_peer: Only valid for :start action, passes --permanent-peer to the hab command
  • listen_gossip: Only valid for :start action, passes --listen-gossip with the specified address and port, e.g., 0.0.0.0:9638, to the hab command
  • listen_http: Only valid for :start action, passes --listen-http with the specified address and port, e.g., 0.0.0.0:9631, to the hab command
  • org: Only valid for :start action, passes --org with the specified org name to the hab command
  • peer: Only valid for :start action, passes --peer with the specified initial peer to the hab command
  • ring: Only valid for :start action, passes --ring with the specified ring key name to the hab command
  • hab_channel: The channel to install Habitat from. Defaults to stable
  • override_name: Advanced Use Valid for all actions, passes --override-name with the specified name to the hab command; used for running services in multiple supervisors

Examples

# set up with just the defaults
hab_sup 'default'

# run with an override name, requires changing listen_http and
# listen_gossip if a default supervisor is running
hab_sup 'test-options' do
  override_name 'myapps'
  listen_http '0.0.0.0:9999'
  listen_gossip '0.0.0.0:9998'
end
# Use with an on-prem Builder
# Access to public builder may not be available
hab_sup 'default' do
  bldr_url 'https://bldr.private.net'
end

hab_config

Applies a given configuration to a habitat service using hab config apply.

Actions

  • apply: (default action) apply the given configuration

Properties

  • service_group: The service group to apply the configuration to, for example, nginx.default
  • config: The configuration to apply as a ruby hash, for example, { worker_count: 2, http: { keepalive_timeout: 120 } }
  • org: (optional) passes the --org option with the specified org name to the hab config command.
  • peer: (optional) passes the --peer option with the specified peer to the hab config command.
  • ring: (optional) passes the --ring option with the specified ring key name to the hab config command.
  • api_host: Hostname for the habitat api in order to look up the existing configuration. Defaults to 127.0.0.1.
  • api_port: Port number for the habitat api. Defaults to 9631.

Notes

The version number of the configuration is automatically generated and will be the current timestamp in seconds since 1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC.

Examples

hab_config 'nginx.default' do
  config({
    worker_count: 2,
    http: {
      keepalive_timeout: 120
    }
  })
end
