How can we upload cookbooks from the command lines?

So something like:

sudo /var/lib/gems/1.8/bin/knife cookbook upload apache2 -u
chef-webui -k /etc/chef/webui.pem -o cookbooks

sudo -> because I’m using the webui key which has restrictive

permissions because I haven’t created an user key yet

/var/lib/gems/1.8/bin/knife -> path to knife since I’m using debian rubygems

cookbook -> subcommand

upload -> option

apache2 -> name of cookbook

-u chef-webui -> user to authenticate as

-k /etc/chef/webui.pem -> users secret key

-o cookbooks -> path to folder where I have the cookbooks on my

filesystem I want to upload.

Ideally, though, you’ll create yourself a user key:

knife configure --initial

(which will create you a key using the webui key)

You’ll be prompted for the path to your chef-repo directory (which
should just be your local copy). Once htat’s done, you can just:

knife cookbook upload apache2

And you’ll be good to go.

You can upload all the cookbooks with knife cookbook upload -a.

Feel free to file a feature request ticket to get multiple cookbooks
in one pass.
