A Vagrant plugin that ensures the desired version of Chef is installed via the platform-specific Omnibus packages. This proves very useful when using Vagrant with provisioner-less baseboxes OR cloud images.
Ensure you have downloaded and installed Vagrant 1.1.x from the Vagrant downloads page.
Installation is performed in the prescribed manner for Vagrant 1.1 plugins.
$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-omnibus
The Omnibus Vagrant plugin automatically hooks into the Vagrant provisioning
middleware. You specify the version of the Chef Omnibus package you want
installed using the
omnibus.chef_version config key. The version string
should be a valid Chef release version or
Install the latest version of Chef:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.omnibus.chef_version = :latest ... end
Install a specific version of Chef:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.omnibus.chef_version = "11.4.0" ... end
Currently this repo ships with a set of basic acceptance tests that will:
- Provision a Vagrant instance.
- Attempt to install Chef 11.4.0 using this plugin.
- Perform a very basic chef-solo run to ensure Chef is in fact installed.
The acceptance tests are run with the following Vagrant providers:
- VirtualBox (part of core)
- AWS (ships in vagrant-aws plugin)
The acceptance tests can be run with:
And as expected, all acceptance tests only uses provisioner-less baseboxes and cloud images!
