Spice Deprecation Notice

Spice is no longer being actively maintained.

Consider using Ridley instead.

Spice - Chef API Wrapper

Spice lets you easily integrate your apps with a Chef server. Spice provides support for the Chef API


Install this beast via Rubygems:

gem install spice

Of course, You can always grab the source from http://github.com/danryan/spice.


For configuration and usage patterns, check out the wiki.

Deprecation notice

Explicitly setting a host, port, and scheme value has been removed in favor of setting a single variable, server_url, which matches the format of Chef's client config parameter, chef_server_url.


Hat tip

The design and organization of Spice is very heavily inspired by the Twitter gem. Mad props to those folks.

Contributing to spice

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet
  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
  • Fork the project
  • Start a feature/bugfix branch
  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
