Spiceweasel 2.8 is now available


#1

For those out there using Spiceweasel, I’ve finally put out a new
release rolling up many, many fixes and a few new features. If you’re
unfamiliar with Spiceweasel, it’s a command line tool that generates
knife commands from a simple JSON or YAML file which can be tracked in
version control. A few of the highlights for the 2.8 release include:

  • Flags for subsets of the manifest with --only
  • Support for an options key that tags on options to all nodes (Chris Yates)
  • Bundler support
  • Berkshelf 3 support
  • Updated Gem dependencies to match ChefDK
  • Rubocop cleanups (Andrew Glick)
  • Support for knife-vcair, cleanup of stale cloud providers
  • Massive rspec updates

This should be the last of the knife-based Spiceweasel releases, bug
fixes will still be made as necessary. The next major release will
focus on generating Chef Provisioning recipes (formerly Chef Metal).
