Mash is automation for setting up a basic chef-server install. I created it because setting up chef-server can be a pain in the ass if you're say using an Ubuntu LTS release and don't want to use chef-server packages that are forever and a day old.
Right now, Mash only supports Ubuntu.
The user configured in config/mash.yml must have password-less sudo privileges.
Setting up Mash on your server is pretty simple!
- Clone it
git clone git://github.com/wfarr/mash.git
- Install the dependencies
gem install bundler bundle install
- Update the config files
cp config/mash.yml.example config/mash.yml vim config/mash.yml
cap cowboy bootstrap
knife client list # success!
