dkron chef cookbook

Dkron ( is a distributed cron system. This cookbook can be
used to setup a Dkron server or agent.


  • ark
  • runit


Only a default recipe is provided. It installs dkron, sets up a service and
creates a config file. To control, whether the node will be a server or just
an agent, use the node['dkron']['config']['server'] attribute.

The recipe does not handle the setup of the key value store for dkron. You
can do that in your role or wrapper recipe. Supported backend stores are
Etcd, Consul and Zookeeper. Default is Etcd.


See atributes/default.rb.


A test suite is available using rubocop, foodcritic and kitchen. To run static
analysis tests, issue

bundle exec rake test:quick

To run full suite including kitchen tests, issue

bundle exec rake test:complete
