chef generate cookbook, it generates with some default attributes for copyright, license, and email. I went looking for how to override those, and it doesn’t appear to be documented anywhere. The attributes that worked for
knife cookbook create:
cookbook_copyright "MyCo" cookbook_email "firstname.lastname@example.org"
are ignored by ChefDK’s generators.
After a little spelunking through the ChefDK source code, I found that if I put the following in ~/.chef/config.rb, it worked:
chefdk.generator.copyright_holder "MyCo" chefdk.generator.license "apache2" chefdk.generator.email "email@example.com"
Yay for progress! I can run
chef generate cookbook and everything works great. Until I run Berkshelf, that is…
PS C:\Users\l.wright\Documents\code\mycookbook> berks C:/opscode/chefdk/embedded/lib/ruby/gems/2.1.0/gems/chef-config-12.7.2/lib/chef-config/workstation_config_loader.rb:161:in `rescue in read_config': You have an error in your config file C:/Users/l.wright/.chef/config.rb (ChefConfig::ConfigurationError) NoMethodError: undefined method `copyright_holder' for nil:NilClass C:/Users/l.wright/.chef/config.rb:1:in `from_string'
Is there a way to set these defaults that will make both ChefDK and berks happy?
