Requirements

Chef

Tested on 0.10.8 but newer and older version should work just fine. File an issue if this isn't the case.

Platform

The following platforms have been tested with this cookbook, meaning that the recipes and LWRPs run on these platforms without error:

  • ubuntu (10.04)

Please report any additional platforms so they can be added.

Cookbooks

This cookbook depends on the following external cookbooks:

Installation

Depending on the situation and use case there are several ways to install this cookbook. All the methods listed below assume a tagged version release is the target, but omit the tags to get the head of development. A valid Chef repository structure like the Opscode repo is also assumed.

From the Opscode Community Platform

To install this cookbook from the Opscode platform, use the knife command:

knife cookbook site install fanfare

Using Librarian-Chef

Librarian-Chef is a bundler for your Chef cookbooks. Include a reference to the cookbook in a Cheffile and run librarian-chef install. To install Librarian-Chef:

gem install librarian
cd chef-repo
librarian-chef init

To use the Opscode platform version:

echo "cookbook 'fanfare'" >> Cheffile
librarian-chef install

Or to reference the Git version:

cat >> Cheffile <<END_OF_CHEFFILE
cookbook 'fanfare',
  :git => 'https://github.com/fnichol/chef-fanfare', :ref => 'v0.1.2'
END_OF_CHEFFILE
librarian-chef install

Using knife-github-cookbooks

The knife-github-cookbooks gem is a plugin for knife that supports installing cookbooks directly from a GitHub repository. To install with the plugin:

gem install knife-github-cookbooks
cd chef-repo
knife cookbook github install fnichol/chef-fanfare/v0.1.2

As a Tarball

If the cookbook needs to downloaded temporarily just to be uploaded to a Chef Server or Opscode Hosted Chef, then a tarball installation might fit the bill:

cd chef-repo/cookbooks
curl -Ls https://github.com/fnichol/chef-fanfare/tarball/v0.1.2 | tar xfz - && \
  mv fnichol-chef-fanfare-* fanfare

As a Git Submodule

A dated practice (which is discouraged) is to add cookbooks as Git submodules. This is accomplished like so:

cd chef-repo
git submodule add git://github.com/fnichol/chef-fanfare.git cookbooks/fanfare
git submodule init && git submodule update

Note: the head of development will be linked here, not a tagged release.
