Description

This cookbook customizes the motd/login feedback (for Ubuntu servers only at the moment) by adding fortunes, read by adorable cowsay characters, wrapped up in rainbow lolcat sprinkles.

The cow says...

This was a quick extraction from a larger existing project, so it's a little rough around the edges at the moment. I have had a fair amount of external interest so I'm putting this out in the hopes that more people help make it more awesome.

Requirements

This cookbook currently relies on the excellent chef-rvm cookbook from @fnichol and assumes a system-level rvm install. It would be great if this cookbook were totally standalone someday...

Supported Platforms

The following platforms are supported by this cookbook, meaning that the recipes run on these platforms without error:

  • Ubuntu

Recipes

  • personality - The default recipe.

Usage

This cookbook sets up a file using the update-motd.d system. There's nothing to do beyond that.

Attributes

  • default["personality"]["characters"] = "default daemon eyes bong ghostbusters beavis.zen bud-frogs calvin cheese cock milk dragon dragon-and-cow elephant gnu head-in stegosaurus turtle tux"
