ChefDK 0.6.0 Released! [feedly]

ChefDK 0.6.0 Released!
// Chef Blog

Hi Chefs, We've released ChefDK 0.6.0, which you can find on our downloads page.

This release has three changes from ChefDK 0.5.1:

  • New chef provision command.
  • Berkshelf is upgraded to 3.2.4
  • Kitchen Vagrant is upgraded to 0.18.0

Chef Provision Command

To make it easier to get started with Chef Provisioning, and also to provide a provisioning mechanism that works with Policyfiles, we've added a chef provision command. By default, this will invoke chef-client against a cookbook named "provision" in your current working directory. chef provision allows you to optionally pass in some parameters via CLI options to make Chef Provisioning work like knife bootstrap for simple automated VM provisioning use cases. You can also ignore the command line parameters and manage clusters in a convergent manner.

To learn more, check out the provisioning README in the ChefDK repo. Since we've only used chef provision for a few of the use cases that Chef Provisioning supports, we're considering the command beta for now. Once we get more experience with it and its APIs settle, we'll document it on our docs site and integrate it with ChefDK's generators. If you try it and find that it doesn't support your use case, feel free to file an issue or pull request.

Happy Cheffing!
