This cookbook exists to show how Jenkins can be configured to build a CI pipeline for Chef cookbook development. See the accompanying blog post for details and commentary.
Ubuntu 13.04 is the only supported system.
To use the included Vagrantfile, you'll need Vagrant with the vagrant-berkshelf and vagrant-omnibus plugins installed. It should work fine under Virtualbox, but I've been using VMware as it seems to cope better under load.
Checkout this repository and run
vagrant up. When Vagrant finishes
provisioning the machine, Jenkins will be available on
Known Issue: The machine creates test jobs for three cookbooks, and the first test run for each (during provisioning) fails. I suspect this would be fixed by restarting Jenkins after adding plugins (the "configure-jenkins" recipe) and before defining the jobs, but it didn't bother me enough to add the necessary hackery.
Click "Build Now" on each job and you'll see them work correctly.
