Description

Installs git and optionally sets up a git server as a daemon under runit.

Requirements

Ohai and Chef:

  • Ohai: 6.14.0+

This cookbook makes use of node['platform_family'] to simplify platform selection logic. This attribute was introduced in Ohai v0.6.12.

Platform:

The following platform families are supported:

  • Debian
  • Arch
  • RHEL
  • Fedora
  • Mac OS X (10.6.0+)
  • Windows

Cookbooks:

  • runit (for git::server)
  • build-essential (for git::source)
  • dmg (for OS X installation)
  • yum (for RHEL 5 installation)

Windows Dependencies

The windows_package resource from the Windows cookbook is required to install the git package on Windows.

Attributes

default

The following attributes are platform-specific.

Windows

  • node['git']['version'] - git version to install
  • node['git']['url'] - URL to git package
  • node['git']['checksum'] - package SHA256 checksum
  • node['git']['display_name'] - windows_package resource Display Name (makes the package install idempotent)

Mac OS X

  • node['git']['osx_dmg']['url'] - URL to git package
  • node['git']['osx_dmg']['checksum'] - package SHA256 checksum

Linux

  • node['git']['prefix'] - git install directory
  • node['git']['version'] - git version to install
  • node['git']['url'] - URL to git tarball
  • node['git']['checksum'] - tarball SHA256 checksum

Recipes

default

Installs base git packages based on platform.

server

Sets up a git daemon to provide a server.

source

Installs git from source.

windows

Installs git client on Windows

Usage

This cookbook primarily installs git core packages. It can also be used to serve git repositories.

To install git client (all supported platforms):

include_recipe 'git'

To install git server:

include_recipe "git::server"

This creates the directory specified by git/server/base_path (default is /srv/git) and starts a git daemon, exporting all repositories found. Repositories need to be added manually, but will be available once they are created.
