Spiceweasel 2.6.0


#1

Released Spiceweasel 2.6.0 this weekend, adding the following new features:

  • Linode and Digital Ocean support (Fletcher Nichol)
  • –node-only mode for uploading node files and applying their run list without bootstrapping (ie. with Vagrant)
  • Google support
  • the manifest no longer has to be the last option


Spiceweasel is a command-line tool for batch loading Chef infrastructure. It provides a simple syntax in Ruby, JSON or YAML for describing and deploying infrastructure in order with the Chef command-line tool knife. This manifest may be bundled with a Chef repository to deploy the infrastructure contained within the repository and validate that the components listed are all present. The manifest may also be extracted from an existing repository.

Why opscode doesn’t include spiceweasel in the mainline ?

Perhaps this is planned for the future ?

I can find a code for lxc provider to deploy on it. Can you show me a link ?

I know that you contributor of lxc cookbook. How iceweasel closely
linked (correspond) with lxc cookbook ?

I search for cookbook for deploy lxc containers on our servers.

Spiceweasel is something I’ve maintained and developer on the side of
Chef over the last 3 years, I’ve never pushed for it to be included
into Opscode’s list of supported applications. It fits a niche but I’m
not sure the demand has been there for Opscode to support it. I do
plan to continue to support and develop it and have lots of great
contributors.

I haven’t used knife-lxc myself, the lxc patches came from another
user. I am not currently using LXC, but I would start with the Heavy
Water cookbook if I was getting started:
