Build Status

Travis cookbooks!

Travis cookbooks are collections of Chef cookbooks used with Chef for setting up Linux VMs for running tests and Travis internal machines.

The wrapper cookbooks that compose together the cookbooks found here live over in the Travis CI Infrastructure Packer Templates repository.

Developing Cookbooks

Directory structure

There are two cookbook path directories in this repository:

  • cookbooks authored by Travis CI
  • community-cookbooks vendored community stuff


There is no Gemfile for specifying Chef dependencies. Please install the ChefDK.


The script that's run on Travis is ./runtests, which by default runs on the ./cookbooks directory. Example usage:


Any change to the cookbooks should also be tested on an actual build-VM, after building a test image. More information on how to trigger a test image build can be found in the packer-templates README.


There are two long-lived branches:

  • master per tradition, which is compatible with Ubuntu 16.04
  • trusty-stable, which is compatible with Ubuntu 14.04

Please target your patches accordingly.
