Chef Zero provider for Test Kitchen that enables Berkshelf to vendor the cookbook versions specified by a given chef environment.
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!
In order to install this provider, run the following alternative commands:
- If you use the test-kitchen bundled with ChefDK (I strongly recommend you to do it):
chef gem install kitchen-chef_zero_berks_env

- Otherwise simply run:
gem install kitchen-chef_zero_berks_env
Simply replace the provider from
The provider will look for the
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.
