notes: Simple Chef with Vagrant

(placeholder for Chef & Vagrant article)


install Vagrant and Chef in Ubuntu

$ sudo apt-get install vagrant chef

$ chef-client -v
Chef: 10.12.0

install Knife

$ knife configure

$ edit ~/.chef/knife.rb

cookbook_path [ './site-cookbooks' ]

use Knife to create a Cookbook

$ knife cookbook create beer
** Creating cookbook beer
** Creating README for cookbook: beer
** Creating CHANGELOG for cookbook: beer
** Creating metadata for cookbook: beer

When the "beer" cookbook runs, it creates a file in /tmp

$ edit site-cookbooks/beer/recipes/default.rb'/tmp/beer.txt', 'w') {|f| f.write('tasty\n') }

Tell Vagrant to use Chef, and to run "beer" recipe

$ edit Vagrantfile
  config.vm.provision :chef_solo do |chef|
    chef.cookbooks_path = "site-cookbooks"
     chef.add_recipe "beer"

Boot the VM, thus running chef-client and our beer recipe

$ vagrant up

Verify it worked

$ vagrant ssh -c 'cat /tmp/beer.txt'
