Appending Config file


#1

I need to append something to a file; therefore, not being a default
attribute or override attribute. What would I need to do to append to the
bottom of a configuration file within roles?

Normally the idea is that you manage a file’s entire contents with Chef.
However, if you really need to do line editing, may I recommend:
