Chef Zero provider for Test Kitchen that enables Berkshelf to vendor the cookbook versions specified by a given chef environment.

Use Case

If you adopted the pattern of pinning cookbooks per chef environment, and still want to use Berkshelf and Test Kitchen on your workflow, this provider extension enables Berkshelf to build a lock file based on a given chef environment, respecting the cookbook version dependencies. The default behaviour of the Chef providers is to first gather the cookbook dependencies using Berkshelf vendor and then run Chef on the box. Well, if you don't pin the cookbook version dependencies within the cookbooks, Berkshelf will end up vendoring always the latest versions. That might conflict with cookbook restrictions that you have defined within the chef environment, and the converge will fail. Hopefuly this provider will do the trick!

Installation

In order to install this provider, run the following alternative commands:

  1. If you use the test-kitchen bundled with ChefDK (I strongly recommend you to do it):
chef gem install kitchen-chef_zero_berks_env

  1. Otherwise simply run:
gem install kitchen-chef_zero_berks_env

Usage

Simply replace the provider from chef_zero to chef_zero_berks_env. The provider will look for the environments_path and environment configs from the provider.

You can specify the environments_repo config, that overrides the environments_path. That allows you to fetch the chef environments from a remote repository.

Example

provisioner:
  name: chef_zero_berks_env
  environments_path: 'environments'

suites:
  - name: default
    provisioner:
      client_rb:
        environment: 'my_chef_environment'

or

provisioner:
  name: chef_zero_berks_env
  environments_repo: 'git@github.com:ruizink/my_awesome_chef_environments.git'

suites:
  - name: default
    provisioner:
      client_rb:
        environment: 'my_chef_environment'
