Grocery Delivery

Continuous Integration

Intro

Ohai!

Welcome to Grocery Delivery, software to keep cookbooks, roles, and databags in sync between a VCS repo and a chef server. The idea is that if you have multiple, distinct Chef server instances that should all be identical, they can all run this script in cron. The script uses proper locking, so you should be able to run it every minute.

However, there are several things to know:

  • It assumes you don't leverage versions or environments.
  • It assumes you want anything committed to HEAD to be uploaded immediately.

Grocery Delivery is pretty customizable. Many things can be tuned from a simple config file, and it's pluggable so you can extend it as well.

Prerequisites

Grocery Delivery is a particular way of managing your Chef infrastructure, and it assumes you follow that model consistently. Here are the basic principals:

  • Checkins are live immediately (which implies code review before merge)
  • Versions are meaningless (ideally, never change them)
  • You want all your chef-servers in sync
  • Everything you care about comes from version control.

We recommend enabling attributes whitelisting to prevent node attributes being saved back to the server. In recent versions of Chef (past Chef 11), this feature is built-in. For older versions, we recommend using the whitelist_node_attrs cookbook.

Dependencies

  • Mixlib::Config
  • BetweenMeals

Config file

The default config file is /etc/gd-config.rb but you may use -c to specify another. The config file works the same as client.rb does for Chef - there are a series of keywords that take an argument and anything else is just standard Ruby.

The following configuration options are available:

  • berks

    Description: Determines if we should use Berkshelf to resolve deps, upload cookbooks

    CLI Argument(s): '-b', '--berks'

    Value data type: Boolean

    Default: false

    Notes: Existence of CLI argument equates to true

  • berks_bin

    Description: Path to Berkshelf binary.

    CLI Argument(s): '-B', '--berks-bin FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: /opt/chefdk/bin/berks

  • berks_config

    Description: Path to Berkshelf config.

    CLI Argument(s): '--berks-config FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: nil

  • config_file

    Description: Path to Grocery Delivery config

    CLI Argument(s): -c, --config-file FILE

    Value data type: String

    Default: /etc/gd-config.rb

  • cookbook_paths

    Description: Space-delimited array of dirs that contain cookbooks relative to reponame

    CLI Argument(s): '--cookbook-paths DIRECTORY1 DIRECTORY2 DIRECTORY3 ...'

    Value data type: String

    Default: ['chef/cookbooks']

  • databag_path

    Description: A directory to find databags in relative to reponame.

    CLI Argument(s): '-d', '--databag-path FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: 'chef/databags'

  • dry_run

    Description: Enable dry-run mode.

    CLI Argument(s): '-n', '--dry-run'

    Value data type: Boolean

    Default: false

    Notes: Existence of CLI argument equates to true

  • knife_bin

    Description: Path to knife binary.

    CLI Argument(s): '-k', '--knife-bin FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: /opt/chef/bin/knife

    Notes: e.g. /var/chef/grocery_delivery_work/ops/chef/cookbooks

  • knife_config

    Description: Knife config to use for uploads.

    CLI Argument(s): '-K', '--knife-config FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: /root/.chef/knife.rb

    Notes: knife.rb will need to set cookbook_path pointing to the cookbook path in the work directory

  • lockfile

    Description: Path to lockfile.

    CLI Argument(s): '-l', '--lockfile FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: /var/lock/subsys/grocery_delivery

  • master_path

    Description: The top-level path for Grocery Delivery's work (most other paths are relative to this).

    CLI Argument(s): '-m', '--master-path FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: /var/chef/grocery_delivery_work

  • pidfile

    Description: Path to pidfile.

    CLI Argument(s): -p, --pidfile FILE

    Value data type: String

    Default: /var/run/grocery_delivery.pid

  • plugin_path

    Description: Path to plugin file.

    CLI Argument(s): '-P', '--plugin-path FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: /etc/gd-plugin.rb

  • repo_update

    Description: Enables/disables cookbook repo update before run.

    CLI Argument(s): '-U', '--no-repo-update'

    Value data type: Boolean

    Default: true

    Note: Existence of CLI argument equates to false. This might be beneficial for those wanting to run Grocery Delivery in CI, within a container, or some other non-standard environment where there is no need to update the cookbook repository before running Grocery Delivery.

  • repo_url

    Description: The URL to clone/checkout if it doesn't exist.

    CLI Argument(s): '-u', '--repo-url URL'

    Value data type: String

    Default: nil

  • reponame

    Description: The relative directory to check the repo out to, inside of master_path.

    CLI Argument(s): '-N', '--repo-name'

    Value data type: String

    Default: ops

  • rev_checkpoint

    Description: File with last-uploaded revision, relative to reponame.

    CLI Argument(s): '-C', '--revision-checkpoint FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: gd_revision

  • role_path

    Description: A directory to find roles in relative to reponame.

    CLI Argument(s): '-r', '--role-path FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Description: Whether or not to track symlinks.

    CLI Argument(s): '--track-symlinks'

    Value data type: Boolean

    Default: false

    Notes: Existence of CLI argument equates to true

  • vcs_path

    Description: Path to git or svn binary.

    CLI Argument(s): '--vcs-path FILE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: nil

    Notes: If not given, just uses 'git' or 'svn'

  • vcs_type

    Description: Git or SVN?

    CLI Argument(s): '--vcs-type TYPE'

    Value data type: String

    Default: svn

  • verbosity

    Description: Verbosity level.

    CLI Argument(s): '-v', '--verbosity'

    Value data type: N/A

    Default: WARN

    Notes: Specify twice via CLI for debug.

Plugin

The plugin should be a ruby file which defines several class methods. It is class_eval()d into a Hooks class.

The following functions can optionally be defined:

  • self.preflight_checks(dryrun)

This code will run once we've read our config and loaded our plugins but before anything else. We don't even have a lock yet. Dryrun is a bool which indicates if we are in dryrun mode.

  • self.prerun(dryrun)

This is run after we've gotten a lock, written a pidfile and initialized our repo object (but not touched the repo yet)

  • self.post_repo_up(dryrun)

This is code to run after we've updated the repo, but before we've done any work to parse it.

  • self.postrun(dryrun, success, msg)

After we've parsed the updates to the repo and uploaded/deleted the relevant items from the local server. Success is a bool for whether we succeeded, and msg is the status message - either the revision we sync'd or an error.

  • self.atexit(dryrun, success, msg)

Same as postrun, but is registered as an atexit function so it happens even if we crash.
