LICENSE Preparing repository for splitting cookbooks into their own repos. Preparing repository for splitting cookbooks into their own repos.


Installs god gem, sets up modular configuration directory and provides a defininition to monitor processes.


Sample configuration file uses mongrel_runit for managing mongrels via runit. Opscode does not have a mongrel_runit cookbook, however.


  • Debian/Ubuntu


  • runit


This recipe is designed to be used through the god_monitor define. Create a god configuration file in your application's cookbook and then call god_monitor:

god_monitor "myproj" do
  config "myproj.god.erb"

A sample mongrel.god.erb is provided, though it assumes mongrel_runit is used. This can be used as a baseline for customization.
