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.

Dynamic Attributes

Description

Interprets and rewrites node attributes defined in roles to provide more
dynamicity. For instance, it can be used to get the value of the fqdn in
a role by setting an attribute to "node['fqdn']". This cookbook will
replace "node['fqdn']" by its true value at execution (in compile phase) so
it is available to other cookbooks. This allows a role to be more shareable
between nodes.

Different methods of substitution are available. Each method has its own recipe
but all are included by default recipe.

Known limitation: derived attributes defined in attribute files will not read
the rewritten values. This is because attribute files are initialized before
recipes are compiled, so before the substitutions take place. This will
probably not be fixed as it is actually a feature to do the substitution during
the cookbook compilation phase, so you may use as source an attribute defined
in some other cookbook. Moreover, this limitation should not be encountered
very often and can be easily overcome by redefining the derived attributes.

Requirements

Cookbooks and gems

Declared in [metadata.rb](metadata.rb) and in [Gemfile](Gemfile).

Platforms

It should work on any platform as it is pure ruby. However it is just tested
with kitchen on a Centos 7 docker image.

Usage

To be started

Add the default recipe in you runlist in any position you
want, knowing that a source must be before and a reader must be after to see
the effect in compile phase.

You may also want to tweak attributes (like whitelisting).

Read recipes documentation for more details.

Test

This cookbook is tested with kitchen on a Centos 7 docker image. A test
cookbook is used to extract attributes after default recipe has run.

For more information, see [.kitchen.yml](.kitchen.yml) and [test](test)
directory.

Attributes

Configuration is done by overriding default attributes. All configuration keys
have a default defined in [attributes/default.rb](attributes/default.rb).
Please read it to have a comprehensive view of what and how you can configure
this cookbook behavior.

Recipes

default

Include replace and then eval recipes. So it performs all substitutions,
one after another. Attribute key (keys in hashmaps) are also modified if
needed.

Note that by default, eval has no effect as no attribute is whitelisted. In
contrary, replace is executed on all attributes.

You can look at examples defined as tests for more information.

eval

Evaluate (with the use of eval method) whitelisted (default: none) attributes
as if there were referenced in a double-quote string and set the result as new
attribute value. For instance, an attribute with value "1+#{1+1}" will be
rewrited as "1+2" (as it would be in ruby).

Be careful with this substitution method as you can execute any ruby code. Be
sure to whitelist only the attributes you need.

You can look at examples defined as tests for more information.

replace

Replace (recursively) whitelisted (default: all) attributes of the form
"node['foo']['bar']" to their "true" value. It is not a string
interpolation nor a substring replacement: it will work solely if the
attributes value is exactly "node['something']".

If the target value does not exist (like "node['doesnotexist']"), it keeps
the current value (that is the string "node['doesnotexist']").

You can look at examples defined as tests for more information.

Libraries

Provide implementation of the different methods: eval and replace.

Resources/Providers

None.
