Build Status

The Kitchen Busser (kb) is a test setup and execution framework designed to work on remote nodes whose system dependencies cannot be relied upon, except for an Omnibus installation of Chef. It uses a plugin architecture to add support for different testing strategies such minitest, cucumber, bash, etc.

Standalone Installation

To install kb without Test Kitchen in a standalone environment, download and run its installer:

/opt/chef/embedded/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSkL"
