Butcher

Build status

Butcher is a set of command line tools intended to ease the use of Chef with a managed Opscode account.

Installation

gem install "butcher"

Or stick this in your Gemfile

gem "butcher"
#  or
gem "butcher", "~>1.0.0"

Commands

The following commands are currently available. All commands should be run from the top level of a chef directory.

Stab

SSH into a node based on a grep of the node name.

Usage: stab [options] <node name> [ssh options]
  -f, --force            # download new node list even if a cache file exists
  -h, --help             # prints usage
  -v, --verbose          # be expressive

Node name is loosely matched against name attributes given to nodes in chef. If multiple nodes match a given string, stab will ask for clarification. Enter the number of the host to connect:

> knife status
1 hours ago, app.node, app.domain.com, 1.1.1.1, solaris2 5.11.
5 minutes ago, other.node, other.domain.com, 1.1.1.2, solaris2 5.11.

> stab something
Unable to find node "something"

> stab node
 1   "app.node" => 1.1.1.1
 2   "other.node" => 1.1.1.2

 which server? >

Nodes are cached in a file named after your organization in Opscode. Stab discovers this by looking at the chef_server_url in your knife.rb. For this reason, stab can only be run from the top level of a chef repo.
