DESCRIPTION:

Ohai detects data about your operating system. It can be used standalone, but its primary purpose is to provide node data to Chef.

Ohai will print out a JSON data blob for all the known data about your system. When used with Chef, that data is reported back via node attributes.

Chef distributes ohai as a RubyGem. This README is for developers who want to modify the Ohai source code. For users who want to write plugins for Ohai, see the docs:

DEVELOPMENT:

Before working on the code, if you plan to contribute your changes, you should read the contributing guidelines:

The basic process for contributing is:

  1. Fork this repo on GitHub.
  2. Create a feature branch for your work.
  3. Make your change, including tests.
  4. Submit a pull request.

ENVIRONMENT:

Ohai's development dependencies should be installed with bundler. Just run bundle install in the root of the repo.

Spec Testing:

We use RSpec for unit/spec tests. To run the full suite, run:

bundle exec rake spec

You can run individual test files by running the rspec executable:

bundle exec rspec spec/unit/FILE.rb

Rake Tasks

Ohai has some Rake tasks for doing various things.

rake -T
rake build          # Build the gem file ohai-$VERSION.gem
rake install        # install the gem locally
rake install:local  # install the gem locally without network access
rake release        # Create tag $VERSION, build gem, and push to Rubygems
rake spec           # Run RSpec tests

($VERSION is the current version, from the GemSpec in Rakefile)
