Chef Server API Client Library in Golang

This is a Library that you can use to write tools to interact with the chef server.

Install

go get github.com/go-chef/chef

Test

go get -t github.com/go-chef/chef
go test -v github.com/go-chef/chef

SSL

If you run into an SSL verification problem when trying to connect to a ssl server with self signed certs setup your config object with SkipSSL: true

Usage

This example is setting up a basic client that you can use to interact with all the service endpoints (clients, nodes, cookbooks, etc.) More usage examples can be found in the examples directory.

 package main

 import (
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"
    "io/ioutil"
    "log"
    "os"

    "github.com/go-chef/chef"
 )

 func main() {
    // read a client key
    key, err := ioutil.ReadFile("key.pem")
    if err != nil {
        fmt.Println("Couldn't read key.pem:", err)
     os.Exit(1)
   }

    // build a client
    client, err := chef.NewClient(&chef.Config{
        Name: "foo",
        Key:  string(key),
        // goiardi is on port 4545 by default. chef-zero is 8889
        BaseURL: "http://localhost:4545",
    })
    if err != nil {
        fmt.Println("Issue setting up client:", err)
   }

   // List Cookbooks
   cookList, err := client.Cookbooks.List()
   if err != nil {
     fmt.Println("Issue listing cookbooks:", err)
   }

   // Print out the list
   fmt.Println(cookList)
 }

CONTRIBUTING

If you feel like contributing, great! Just fork the repo, make your improvements, and submit a pull request. Tests would, of course, be appreciated. Adding tests where there are no tests currently would be even more appreciated. At least, though, try and not break anything worse than it is. Test coverage has improved, but is still an ongoing concern.
