Current Cookbooks when using Berkshelf


#1

Hi,

I’m using Berkshelf to download community cookbooks for my application and
I’m noticing some cookbooks seem out of date.

For example MongoDB (https://github.com/edelight/chef-mongodb)

Berkshelf => 0.13.7

GitHub => 0.14.4

Is this just how it is when using Berkshelf? There’s no way to make
"berksupdate" use git hub direct?

Thanks.


#2

cookbook ‘mongodo’, github: ‘delight/chef-mongodb’

Also they should really be publishing releases.

Thanks Noah, that works all good.

After looking into this I took a step back and upgraded to Berkshelf v3 by
updating the Gemfile with:

gem “berkshelf”, github: “berkshelf/berkshelf”

Just exploring the newer version of Berkshelf now.

I did need to update the Berksfile with:

cookbook “mongodb”, github: “edelight/chef-mongodb”

Some new commands like “berks vendor” which I’m checking out now as well.

Cheers.
