Chef Development Environment (CDE)

Open in Dashboard

Published by RightScale Open Source on May 03, 2013Revision: 3


This ServerTemplate sets up a standard work environment for Chef development. Instead of setting up a Chef development environment on your local machine you can use this ServerTemplate to launch an instance in the cloud that will automatically pull your cookbook repositories from GitHub and save them locally on the instance under the '/opt/development' directory. - Installs a custom .vimrc - Installs .gitconfig with your own user details - Installs the lastest Chef and Knife - Adds your Git SSH key for pushing code changes to your GitHub repositories - Downloads a public/private repository from GitHub - Includes a command line tool called RightScale Search Function (rsf) for finding the Chef cookbooks and recipes that were executed on the server (/var/cache/rightscale dir)

For more information on how to use this ServerTemplate, see the Intermediate Chef Tutorial.
