Cookbook Version

Library cookbook which provides a resource for writing
runtime configuration files.

A runtime configuration file can come in many flavors, but ultimately
the purpose is to manage them using a simple resource. The only type
which is provided by default is a bash runtime configuration which
is simply a key-value pair.

Basic Usage

This cookbook supports several different formats for writing out
runtime configuration files from a Ruby Hash object.

Writing bashrc skeleton

Any new types can be added by modifying the resource (adding a type)
and writing the appropriate erb template. The example which is used
for testing purposes is writing out an bashrc skeleton file which
manages HTTP proxies.

rc_file '/etc/skel/bashrc' do
  type 'bash'
    'http_proxy' => '',
    'https_proxy' => '',
    'ftp_proxy' => '',
    'no_proxy' => 'localhost,'

Writing Berkshelf configuration

Additionally, this resource supports writing out standard configuration
file types such as JSON, YAML and EDN. The example below shows to write
out a Berkshelf configuration file in the JSON format.

rc_file '/etc/skel/berkshelf.json' do
  type 'json'
    'cookbook' => {
      'copyright' => 'Bloomberg Finance L.P.',
      'email' => '',
      'license' => 'apachev2'
