Goiardi 0.8.0 & shovey


#1

Just in time for Chef Summit, I’d like to announce the release of goiardi
0.8.0 “Hojotoho! Hojotoho!”. This release brings “shovey”, a goiardi
facility for running jobs on nodes without a chef-client run. It’s similar
to Chef Push, although the implementation is rather different - shovey is
built into goiardi, rather than running in a separate push-server, and it
uses serf to send its commands out rather than polling zeromq.

Shovey with goiardi isn’t very useful without a way to execute or manage
the jobs, which is why there is also schob 0.1.0 “Heiaha! Heiaha!”, the
shovey client, and knife-shove 0.6.0 “Helmwige! Hier!”, a knife plugin
forked from knife-push to manage shovey jobs.

There are releases:



And there is documentation:



Blog post is at https://github.com/ctdk/knife-shove/blob/master/README.rdoc.
A better cookbook for the shovey client, and a cookbook for goiardi itself,
are coming soon.

Thanks, and if you’re coming to the Summit I’ll see you there.
