Current release


I use berkshelf for developing / testing pinto cookbook. Berkshelf is a framework for testing / managing chef cookbooks. So if you are interested in contributing, hacking - berkshelf is the best way to go ahead. Next commands will explain how to start.

Install berkshelf

$ gem install berkshelf

Install vagrant

Vagrant is the tools for running / provisioning VirtualBox machines. Berkshelf and Vagrant are tightly integrated. Berskhelf requires latest version of vagrant. Visit the Vagrant downloads page - and download the latest installer for your operating system.

Install vagrant-berkshelf plugin

Second thing we need is berkshelf vagrant plugin. Following command will install the plugin

$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-berkshelf 

Fork cookbooks

$ git clone

Run vagrant box

Following command will boot vagrant virtual machine, deploy pinto on it and run tests.

$ cd cookbooks/pinto
$ vagrant up

Make changes

Change code and revision your changes running tests again. For standard vagrant work-flow checkout -

$ mcedit recipes/application.rb
$ vagrant provision

This cookbook has no specified dependencies.
