ChefVM

Build Status Bitdeli Badge

Simple Chef environment manager, usage inspired by wayneeseguin/rvm

Installation

# Chefvm will create a symlink between (~/.chefvm -> ~/.chef ), make sure you have no ~/.chef directory before installing
mv ~/.chef ~/.chef.bak
git clone git://github.com/trobrock/chefvm.git ~/.chefvm
~/.chefvm/bin/chefvm init # Follow these instructions

After following these instructions reload your terminal, then

chefvm create old_config
mv ~/.chef.bak/* ~/.chefvm/configurations/old_config
rm -rf ~/.chef.bak

Usage

Put the files (knife.rb, pem keys, etc...) that you would normally have in ~/.chef into a folder named whatever you want in the configurations folder, then you can use that name in place of YOUR_CHEF_CONFIG in the below commands

# Use a specific config
chefvm use {YOUR_CHEF_CONFIG|default}
# or
chefvm YOUR_CHEF_CONFIG

# Set your default config
chefvm default YOUR_CHEF_CONFIG

# List your configurations, including current and default
chefvm list

# Create a new config
chefvm create YOUR_CHEF_CONFIG

# Delete a config
chefvm delete YOUR_CHEF_CONFIG

# Copy a config
chefvm copy SRC_CONFIG DEST_CONFIG

# Rename a config
chefvm rename OLD_CONFIG NEW_CONFIG

# Open a config directory in $EDITOR
chefvm edit YOUR_CHEF_CONFIG

# Update chefvm to the latest
chefvm update

Handy Prompt function

You can use chefvm current in PS1 in bash to see your current config in your prompt

PS1="\$(chefvm current)" $
