Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

concat-cookbook

concat is a cookbook inspired by the Puppet concat module to allow you to build text files out of smaller orderable fragments. Use cases include building firewall rules, fragmenting monolithic configuration files into smaller chunks, etc.

Supported Platforms

This was tested on Linux and should work as expected there. No idea whether it will work elsewhere.

Requirements

Chef 12.3.0 or higher

Usage

  1. Require the concat cookbook in your own cookbook's metadata.rb.
  2. Use the concat_fragment resource type to build up the fragments for the target file. At present the fragments will only make use of template files, and not cookbook files.
  3. After all fragment resources have been assembled, use a concat resource, ensuring that the path attribute of this resource exactly matches the path you supplied for each fragment.

Example

From the test fixture cookbook, this will create two fragments and meld them into a single concatenated file which will appear at /tmp/test_create1/test: ```text concat_fragment 'test1.erb' do target '/tmp/test_create1/test' end

concat_fragment 'test2.erb' do target '/tmp/test_create1/test' variables( var1: 'hello' ) end

directory '/tmp/test_create1'

concat '/tmp/test_create1/test' ```

Current features

  • allows creation of file fragments and concatenation into final file
  • deletion of individual fragments and fragment directories
  • fragments from cookbook files as well as templates
  • lots of tests courtesy of Test Kitchen

Upcoming features

  • additional features relentlessly cribbed from the Puppet concat module
