This gem enables a Rails app to define custom Chef recipes while still using an awesome default set of Chef recipes. Includes recipes for Ruby 1.9, postgresql, and nginx/passenger.
To use Elzar with your Rails app, see USAGE.md.
If you'd like to try these Chef cookbooks with Vagrant:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:relevance/elzar.git $ cd elzar $ gem install bundler # creates a `provision` directory for local vagrant use $ rake bam $ cd provision $ vim dna.json # edit DNA file to give a name to your Rails app with no whitespace (e.g., "my_sample_app") $ bundle install ## Using Vagrant Download and install VirtualBox (as instructed in the Vagrant [Getting Started guide](http://vagrantup.com/docs/getting-started/index.html)). Then set up your bundle and grab the Ubuntu Lucid VM image. vagrant box add lucid64 http://files.vagrantup.com/lucid64.box ```sh ## Spin up a new VM and run the Chef recipes on it $ vagrant up ## SSH into the VM $ vagrant ssh ## Destroy the VM $ vagrant destroy ## Re-run Chef recipes on the VM $ vagrant provision ## Stop/Start the VM $ vagrant suspend $ vagrant resume
The CLI tool (bin/elzar) is built on top of GLI
which is a command line parser modelled after Git. Normally any
exception that occurs while running a command results in only the error
message being displayed, not the backtrace. If you would like to view
the backtrace you must set the env variable
GLI_DEBUG=true bundle exec bin/elzar foo
