ElasticSeach Chef Cookbook
This is an OpsCode Chef cookbook for ElasticSearch.
It uses officially released Debian packages, provides Upstart service script but has no way to tweak ElasticSearch configuration parameters using Chef node attributes. The reason for that is it was created for CI and development environments. Attributes will be used in the future, doing so for single-server installations won't be difficult.
This cookbook currently provides ElasticSearch 0.19.x but can be used to install other versions by overriding data bag attributes.
