Repository

Build a repository, using Chef.

Supported

Currently only providing apt based repositories

Usage (easy)

Setup the incoming repository by adding repository::incoming to the run list. This will create a directory (by default at /srv/repository_incoming). Drop packages there and run Chef. Chef will automatically add them into the repository. Yay!

Incoming related attributes

default[:repository][:incoming][:codename] = node.lsb.codename
default[:repository][:incoming][:name] = 'incoming'
default[:repository][:incoming][:architecture] = 'amd64'
default[:repository][:incoming][:label] = 'Incoming Repository'
default[:repository][:incoming][:description] = 'Incoming repository for dropped off packages'
default[:repository][:incoming][:directory] = '/srv/repository_incoming'
default[:repository][:incoming][:multi_version] = true
default[:repository][:incoming][:enable_locally] = true

Usage (involved)

Adding repository

You can add your own repository components using the repos array attribute. For example:

node.set[:repository][:repos] = [
  :name => 'my_packages',
  :codename => 'precise',
  :architecture => %w(amd64),
  :multi_version => true
]

or via the LWRP:

repository 'my_packages' do
  codename 'precise'
  architecture %w(amd64)
  multi_version => true
end

Adding Packages

Add packages to the repository by using the repository_package LWRP:

repository_package '/path/to/my/cool/package.deb' do
  repository 'my_packages'
end

Keys

Keys are required to sign packages and repository files. They can be provided via data bag, encrypted data bag, or automatically generated on the node. By default the keys will be auto generated using the gpg cookbook.

Data bag

  • To enable data bag based keys: node.set[:repository][:pgp_data_bag] = true
  • To enable encrypted data bag based keys: node.set[:repository][:pgp_data_bag] = 'encrypted'

Encrypted data bags will use the default secret for decryption.

Data bag structure

{
  "id": "pgp",
  "email": "user@example.com",
  "private": "PRIVATE KEY CONTENTS",
  "public": "PUBLIC KEY CONTENTS"
}
