Chefdk wrapper cookbook generator?


#1

Hi,

Clearly from the mailing list and
http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=chef+wrapper+cookbook there are tons of
questions about how best to use wrapper cookbooks.

It would be really helpful if there was a tool in chefdk such as knife
cookbook-wrap

This would take the name of the cookbook, pick all the “please override
attributes” and make it super-simple for people to set up metadata and
define the attributes most commonly overridden using the right syntax.

Is there one?

Thanks,
Martin.

Martin,

You’re right about the tons of questions on how to use wrapper cookbooks.
Not sure if a generator would help, but I’m adding your message to my list
of topics where Chef should offer better guidance.

Cheers,

Peter
