Attributes

Default recipe attributes:

  • node['vim']['extra_packages'] - An array of extra packages related to vim to install (like plugins). Empty array by default.

  • node['vim']['install_method'] - Sets the install method, choose from the various install recipes. This attribute is set to 'package' by default.

Source recipe attributes:

  • node['vim']['source']['version'] - The version of vim to compile, 7.4 by default.
  • node['vim']['source']['checksum'] - The source file checksum.
  • node['vim']['source']['dependencies'] - These are the non rhl specific devel dependencies for compiling vim.
  • node['vim']['source']['centos_dependencies'] - These are the rhl and centos specific dependencies needed for compiling vim.
  • node['vim']['source']['prefix'] - This is the path the vim bin will be placed, it's /usr/local
  • node['vim']['source']['configuration'] - If you prefer to compile vim differently than the default you can override this configuration.

Usage

Add recipe[vim] to your run list or include the default recipe with include_recipe 'vim' in a recipe that is in your run list.

This uses the value of the attribute node['vim']['install_method'] which by default is package.

If you would like to install additional vim plugin packages, include their package names in the node['vim']['extra_packages'] attribute. Verify that your operating sytem has the package available.

If you would rather compile vim from source, as the case may be for centos nodes, then override the node['vim']['install_method'] with a value of 'source'.
