Pivotal Workstation Build Status

A repeatable, documented, decomposable, shareable and iterative OSX (ruby) development environment

Features

Pivotal Workstation automates the process of installing common applications such as Google Chrome, Firefox, homebrew, and RubyMine. Pivotal Workstation also sets OSX preferences such as dock hiding or key repeat rate. Finally, Pivotal Workstation configures command line tools such as git and ssh.

Installation

cat > ~/Cheffile <<EOF
site 'http://community.opscode.com/api/v1'

cookbook 'pivotal_workstation',
  :git => 'git://github.com/pivotal/pivotal_workstation.git'
EOF

cat > ~/soloistrc <<EOF
recipes:
- pivotal_workstation::meta_osx_base
- pivotal_workstation::meta_osx_development
- pivotal_workstation::meta_ruby_development
EOF
sudo gem install soloist
soloist

Configuration

You may want to change the default applications or preferences. For example, you might want to install only Chrome and Sublime Text. In that case, your soloistrc would look like this:

recipes:
- pivotal_workstation::chrome
- pivotal_workstation::sublime_text

Configuration Interfaces

There are two online tools you can use to generate soloistrc files:

  • SoloWizard

    This is the easiest way to get started, and it only involves cutting-and-pasting one line. Many thanks to Tom Hallett.

  • soloistrc builder

    Soloistrc Builder can be pointed at any cookbook and will help you build a soloistrc. Many thanks to Winston Teo.

Background

Traditionally, Pivotal Labs relied on imaging workstations from a gold master image which was updated as time allowed. Pivotal Workstation creates a development environment with almost no effort. See the recipes folder for a complete list of possible recipes for your ~/soloistrc file.

Many recipes require homebrew. Other recipes will overwrite your .bash_profile. chef-solo runs as root and may make system-wide changes.
