Introducing sous-chef


#1

So I whipped up this little gem that helps me organize my chef scripts:

It allows you to create cookbooks that are specific to nodes, or shared by
all nodes. There’s also a few rake scripts for deploying to EY’s solo
platform. Hopefully this will help folks bitten by “all cookbooks to all
nodes” quirk. And there’s a readme included. Enjoy!

Awesome indeed! I’m having trouble running the chef command. I think
I’m missing EY::ChefRecipes. Where can I find that?

Michael,

That is part of the ‘ey’ gem, which is Engine Yard’s gem for their Solo
platform. You can install it by running:

sudo gem install rest-client aws-s3
sudo gem install ey --source http://gems.engineyard.com
