chef-node

NPM version Build Status Code Climate

A simple Chef client for Node.js. Handles the authentication so you can get on with Cheffing.

Install

npm install chef

Examples

Add role bar to node foo's run list.

var fs = require('fs'),
    chef = require('chef'),
    key = fs.readFileSync('/path/to/key.file.pem'),
    client = chef.createClient('username', key, 'http://chef.server.com:4000');

client.get('/nodes/foo', function(err, res, body) {
    if (err) { return console.log(err); }
    body.run_list.push('role[bar]');
    client.put('/nodes/foo', body, function(err, res, body) {
        console.log(err ? err : body);
    });
});

Methods

The client object supports delete, get, post and put methods and accepts relative and absolute URLs (so you can use URLs returned in responses.)

Self Signed Certs

If you need to connect to a chef server with a self signed cert, add the following to the .js file

process.env.NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED = "0"
