Hint file not installed at compile time:
ohai_hint 'ec2' do compile_time false end
Hint file installed with content:

ohai Cookbook CHANGELOG
This file is used to list changes made in each version of the ohai cookbook.
- Added the ability to use templates and pass in variables with the plugin custom resource
- Resolve failures on Windows nodes
- Added .rb to the name of the plugins so they actually load
- Added testing to ensure the plugins are being loaded in the chef run
The 4.0 release of the Ohai cookbook removes the previous cookbook_file behavior that required forking the cookbook and adding your own plugins. Instead the cookbook ships with a new ohai_plugin custom resource for installing plugins. In addition to this new custom resource the cookbook now requires Chef 12+. See the readme and test recipe for examples. If you require Chef 11 support you'll need to pin to version 3.0 in your environment.
- Fixed the Chefspec matchers
- Change the default value for
node['ohai']['hints_path']to use the Ohai config value. This should be the same value in most use cases, but if a custom path is specified in the chef client config this value will get used automatically by the cookbook.
