Chef recipes to deploy Datadog's components automatically.
- python >= 2.6

- apt & chef_handler
node[:datadog][:api_key]= This needs to be retrieved from your Account Settings page.
node[:datadog][:application_key]= There are none by default. Visit the Account Settings page to create a new APplication Key, to be used in conjunction with your API key.
node[:datadog][:url]= The location of where Datadog is hosted. Should never change.
node[:datadog][:repo]= Where the Datadog-maintained packages are located. Should never change.

- Wait until chef-client runs on the target node (or trigger chef-client if you're impatient)
We are not making use of data_bags in this recipe at this time, as it is unlikely that you will have more than 1 API key.
