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://
  • Install the dependencies
gem install bundler
bundle install
  • Update the config files
cp config/mash.yml.example config/mash.yml
vim config/mash.yml
  • Go!
cap cowboy bootstrap
  • Confirm?
knife client list
# success!
