This cookbook is a transition cookbook aimed at helping move from the
pre-chef_gem era to the post chef_gem era. The chef_gem resource was
introducde in Chef 0.10.9, providing an easy mechanism for installing
and using gems required by Chef internally. When used within an omnibus
installation, chef_gems are installed within the embedded Ruby.
What this cookbook provides
For pre 0.10.9 Chef installations, it provides a chef_gem compatible resouce
allowing cookbooks to be updated but not requiring full conversions. For installations
under 0.10.12, some patches are added to aid in proper omnibus functionality allowing
chef_gem to work as expected. For Chef installations of 0.10.12 and beyond, this
cookbook provides nothing. This means you will get consistent and expected behavior
across Chef versions.
Notable attributes (note that these should only be required for special cases):
node[:gem_binary] = '/usr/local/bin/gem'
node[:chef_gem_binary] = '/opt/opscode/embedded/bin/gem'
With the release of 0.10.12 this cookbook should be considered deprecated and used
only for compatibility with older installations.
This cookbook has no specified dependencies.
