Goiardi is an implementation of the Chef server (http://www.chef.io) written in Go. It can either run entirely in memory with the option to save and load the in-memory data and search indexes to and from disk, drawing inspiration from chef-zero, or it can use MySQL or PostgreSQL as its storage backend.
The full goiardi documentation has been moved out of this README because it was
getting too big to be easily manageable. It now uses sphinx to manage and format
the documentation, which can be found under the
docs/ directory. To learn
about sphinx-doc, see http://sphinx-doc.org/. The documentation can also be
found online at http://goiardi.readthedocs.org/en/latest/.
In addition to the aforementioned Chef documentation at http://docs.opscode.com, more documentation specific to goiardi can be viewed with godoc. See https://godoc.org/golang.org/x/tools/cmd/godoc for an explanation of how godoc works. The goiardi godocs can also be viewed online at https://godoc.org/github.com/ctdk/goiardi.
See the TODO file for an up-to-date list of what needs to be done. There's a lot.
There's going to be a lot of these for a while, so we'll just keep those in a BUGS file, won't we?
This started as a project to learn Go, and because I thought that an in memory chef server would be handy. Then I found out about chef-zero, but I still wanted a project to learn Go, so I kept it up. Chef 11 Server also only runs under Linux at this time, while Goiardi is developed under Mac OS X and ought to run under any platform Go supports (only partially tested at this time though).
If you feel like contributing, great! Just fork the repo, make your improvements, and submit a pull request. Tests would, of course, be appreciated. Adding tests where there are no tests currently would be even more appreciated. At least, though, try and not break anything worse than it is. Test coverage has improved, but is still an ongoing concern.
