This is a simple Chef report handler that reports status of a Chef run through Growl.
Platform: Mac OS X
Growl: Tested with version 1.3.2
There are two ways to use Chef Handlers.
You can install the RubyGem ahead of time, and configure Chef to use them. To do so:
gem install chef-handler-growl
Then add to the configuration (
/etc/chef/solo.rb for chef-solo or
/etc/chef/client.rb for chef-client):
require "chef/handler/growl" report_handlers << Chef::Handler::Growl.new exception_handlers << Chef::Handler::Growl.new
Use the chef_handler cookbook by Opscode. Create a recipe with the following:
# Install the `chef-handler-growl` RubyGem during the compile phase chef_gem "chef-handler-growl" # Then activate the handler with the `chef_handler` LWRP chef_handler "Chef::Handler::Growl" do source "chef/handler/growl" action :enable end
Things I would like to add:
- rspec tests - both Chef::Handler and GNTP#notify have specs, so this was low priority.
- GNTP over the network capability. For example, if I have three virtual machines running Chef on an interval, I'd like them to send notification to my Mac workstation I'm using.
These are created as issues. Pull requests welcome.
