I guess I can just not use templates and output a file with ruby that contains the values I want and that way I don’t have to worry about chef funkiness.
My environment file has a config section with name, value pairs in it. I am trying to output a template of those name, value pairs by putting the below code into my erb file in chef:
<% @config.each do |setting| -%>
<%= setting %>=<%= setting %>
This works great the first time as it creates a property file with my name value pairs.
The problem is when the config section changes. I get a Permission denied error, but if I rerun the recipe then everything works and the new value is in the property file.
How can I create dynamic property files from the environment json file?
