sbp_packer cookbook

Installs Packer using the ark cookbook. Original cookbook from Emil Sit :




Just include recipe[packer] in your run list. Change attribute from 'binary' to 'source' if you prefer to install directly from github

This will put Packer into /usr/local in a packer-*version* directory, with a symlink of packer to /usr/local/bin.


  • node['packer']['url_base'] - Base URL from which to download (in case you have your own mirror). Defaults to the link at
  • node['packer']['zipfile'] - On binary installations, this is the name of the packer zip file with no path info
  • node['packer']['version'] - The version of Packer to install.
  • node['packer']['arch'] - Architecture to use; auto-detects amd64 and 386 but you must override with arm if desired.
  • node['packer']['raw_checksums'] - The contents of the upstream checksum file to allow checksum auto-detection.
  • node['packer']['checksums'] - A Hash mapping file name to checksums, derived by default from raw_checksums.
  • node['packer']['checksum'] - SHA-256 checksum of appropriate binary. Should be auto-detected for the default version using data in raw_checksums or checksums.
  • node['packer']['install_method'] - Either 'binary' or 'source'

When overriding with a particular desired version, you can set the checksum a variety of ways. When this cookbook is updated for a new default version, the checksums will be updated by the maintainers.

If you require a particular older (or newer) version, you can update the raw_checksums with the official SHA256SUM list from${VERSION}/packer_${VERSION}_SHA256SUMS (easiest), directly override the checksums attribute with an explicit map of just the versions you want (somewhat more work for you), or just directly setting the checksum attribute (if you only need a single platform).

Note that you can also ignore the checksum variables if you don't care about downloading the binary repeatedly as Chef only uses the checksum to avoid re-downloads, and not to verify integrity.
