Looking for articles on workflow


#1

I’m trying to figure out the workflow for our group to use Chef and
I’m a bit overwhelmed by the options.
Berkshelf, Whisk, Spork, …

If there are any good articles out there describing the workflows
people actually use, that would be very
helpful.

thanks,

Booker,

You can see a work in progress article that I wrote about developing a cookbook with Berkshelf here: http://vialstudios.com/guide-authoring-cookbooks.html

@Jamie: awesome tutorial!

I have tried it on my Windows box but got stuck at the point where it
should resolve the “artifact” dependency:

Not sure if I did something wrong or it’s not working on Windows yet :-/

The other thing I noticed is that 0.6.0.beta1 locks down the Chef
dependency to 10.12.x in the Gemfile, whilst the CentOS basebox from
your guide comes with Chef 10.14.2 already:

Anyways, awesome work!

Cheers,
Torben
