Anyone Using Chef with a vFabric Stack?


#1

Hi All,

I plan on writing some chef recipes for a vFabric stack (tcServer,
rabbitMQ, etc) and was wondering if anyone has done work in this area
already before I go writing a ton of my own specialized cookbooks.

Thanks,
James

I would wager that almost all the opensource components have cookbooks
written already (officially by opscode in some cases)

It might be best to leverage those where possible. If need be expose more
configuration in the upstream cookbook via pull request?

There’s also a case to be made for an all-encompassing cookbook with things
like vfabric::rabbitmq.
