I want to let all you Chef hackers know about changes that are happening
with Test Kitchen.
Fletcher Nichol recently started work on a new project called “jamie”,
which is an integration test runner that has about 99% the same goals as
Test Kitchen. It’s also very close to the same functionality. Fletcher is
awesome, and the jamie project is awesome, and in the interest of a single
tool/stack for running project integration tests (including cookbooks OR
other projects) we’re going to merge test-kitchen and jamie, and use the
The jamie project has a number of plugins already, named "jamie-something"
and we plan to have these be “kitchen-something”.
This isn’t ready for release quite yet, as we want to make sure that we
have feature parity with test-kitchen as it stands now.
Development discussion will largely happen through the #chef-hacking IRC
channel and the test-kitchen repository itself.
