I created a gem called “bunka" that operates like knife ssh, except that the output is more rspec-like (shows fails and successes):
We’ve been using it for some time now to determine which servers are special snowflakes, before upgrading certain cookbooks.
I’d like to know what you think and any help improving the gem is more than welcome!
On my shorthand to-do list:
• Make the output truly RSpec compatible, so we can use RSpec formatters
• Stop forcing root user, system user (with sudo) should also work
