I just released Kitchen Inspector v.1.1.0 1.
Kitchen Inspector is a CLI tool that checks cookbook’s metadata.rb against
a Chef Server and a Repository Manager (GitLab & GitHub are supported at
It was initially inspired by Kannan Manickam’s Chef Taste, but the focus is
Its aim is to provide a simple way to help cookbook authors detect version
mismatches, out of date requirements, etc…
Some of the inconsistencies it detects:
- repository has a tag that doesn’t match its metadata’s version
- a specified dependency is not available on Chef Server/Repository Manager
- Chef Server and Repository Manager are not aligned
Kitchen Inspector is available on RubyGems so you can check it out with:
$ gem install kitchen-inspector
Feedback is more than welcome.
