A utility for releasing and managing Chef Cookbooks. It will:
- Tag and push a new release to git
- Upload the cookbook to a private or public Supermarket
Existing tools to package cookbooks (such as Knife Community and
knife cookbook site share) require a dependency on Chef. Because of their dependency on Chef, they enforce the use of a "cookbook repo". Especially with the evolution of Berkshelf, cookbooks are individualized artifacts and are often contained in their own repositories. stove is cookbook-centric, rather than Chef-centric.
- Add Stove to your project's Gemfile:
- Run the
bundlecommand to install:
$ bundle install --binstubs
Stove requires your username and private key to upload a cookbook. You can pass these to each command call, or you can set them Stove:
$ stove login --username sethvargo --key ~/.chef/sethvargo.pem
These values will be saved in Stove's configuration file (
~/.stove) and persisted across your workstation.
The default publishing endpoint is the Chef Supermarket, but this is configurable. If you want to publish to an internal Supermarket, you can specify the
$ stove --endpoint https://internal-supermarket.example.com/api/v1
Please note: depending on which version of Chef and which version of Supermarket you are running, you may support the new "extended" metadata fields. By default, Stove writes these new fields when uploading cookbooks, which require Chef 12 or later. If you would like to retain compatibility with Chef 11 you can disable extended metadata with
$ stove --no-extended-metadata
There are two ways to use Stove. You can either use the
stove command directly or use the embedded rake task.
stove command from inside the root of a cookbook:
This will package (as a tarball) the cookbook in the current working directory, tag a new version, push to git, and publish to a cookbook share.
If you are familiar with the Bundler approach to publishing Ruby gems, this approach will feel very familiar. Simply add the following to your
require 'stove/rake_task' Stove::RakeTask.new
And then use rake to publish the cookbook:
$ bin/rake publish
You specify the URL to upload to via
--artifactory, which you can find the URL Artifactory repository configuration. Your API key can be specified either in the
$ARTIFACTORY_API_KEY environment variable or via
# API key in $ARTIFACTORY_API_KEY $ stove --artifactory https://artifactory.example.com/api/chef/nameofrepo # API key in a file $ stove --artifactory https://artifactory.example.com/api/chef/nameofrepo --artifactory-key=@path/to/key/file # API key on the command line $ stove --artifactory https://artifactory.example.com/api/chef/nameofrepo --artifactory-key=XZg6tefUZYfiglmSbQ1s1e6habk
