Description

Adds Data Bag support for older versions of chef-solo.

Requirements

Chef

Chef versions lower than 0.10.4 may benefit. There is no reason to use this cookbook for Chef version 0.10.4 and higher as the feature is part of the core.

Platform

Tested on Mac OS X 10.6.8 and Ubuntu 10.10 but should work any platform that is supported by Chef.

Cookbooks

There are no external cookbook dependencies.

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 solo_data_bags

Using Librarian

The Librarian gem aims to be Bundler for your Chef cookbooks. Include a reference to the cookbook in a Cheffile and run librarian-chef install. To install with Librarian:

gem install librarian
cd chef-repo
librarian-chef init
cat >> Cheffile <<END_OF_CHEFFILE
cookbook 'solo_data_bags',
  :git => 'git://github.com/fnichol/chef-solo_data_bags.git', :ref => 'v0.0.4'
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-solo_data_bags/v0.0.4

As a Git Submodule

A common practice (which is getting dated) is to add cookbooks as Git submodules. This is accomplishes like so:

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

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

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-solo_data_bags/tarball/v0.0.4 | tar xfz - && \
  mv fnichol-chef-solo_data_bags-* solo_data_bags

Usage

Simply include the cookbook in your chef repository and libraries/solo_data_bags will be loaded in the chef-solo run to add Data Bag support.

Recipes

default

This recipe is a no-op and does nothing.

Attributes

There are no attributes to define or configure.

Development

Pull requests are very welcome! Make sure your patches are well tested. Ideally create a topic branch for every separate change you make.
