GreenScreen is a build monitoring tool that is designed to be used as a dynamic Big Visible Chart (BVC) in your work area. It lets you add links to your build servers and displays the largest possible information on a monitor so that the team can see the build status from anywhere in the room.

This cookbook configures a node to run one or more GreenScreen applications. The cookbook uses CustomInk's clone of the original GreenScreen project.



  • add an 'end' that was missing from the default recipe.


  • Changes based on Foodcritic recommendations:
    • Use strings in preference to symbols to access node attributes.
    • Avoid repetition of resource declarations (combine git clone and rake init step)


  • Fix a bug with the config template that was not properly handling explicit jobs or jobs to ignore


  • Fix a bug with the default attributes
  • No longer do a git pull with each chef run, this was causing failures when the config.yml was updated.
