YoloVer Example Repository

This (mono-)repository serves as an example for working with the YoloVer workflow.

This Chef repository will deploy Apache and PostgreSQL for a hypothetical Vandelay Industries.


The major centerpiece of the repo are the Policyfiles.

  • policies/_base.rb – Shared base policy for all servers. This applies the chef-client recipe to all nodes and sets the default sources used for all policies.
  • polices/db.rbdb policy to create a Postgres database server. This applies the vandelay-postgres recipe.
  • policies/web.rbweb policy to create an Apache web server. This applies the vandelay-httpd recipe.

Policy Locks

Each policy has a corresponding lockfile.


As this is at least in part a mono-repo layout, we have an old school cookbooks/ folder containing our local cookbooks.

InSpec Tests

To verify that our policies are correct, we use InSpec tests.
