We memoize a sorted version of descendants so that resource lookups don't have to sort all the things, all the time. This was causing performance issues in test runs, and probably in real life as well.

Dynamic Method Handling

This class handles dynamic methods through the method_missing method

#method_missing(method_symbol, *args, &block) ⇒ Object

If an unknown method is invoked, determine whether the enclosing Provider's lexical scope can fulfill the request. E.g. This happens when the Resource's block invokes new_resource.

Must be a resource class like `Chef::Resource::Execute`, or a corresponding to the name of a resource. The resource must descend from `Chef::Resource::Execute`.

Class Method Details

.action(action, &recipe_block) ⇒ Object

Define an action on this resource.

The action is defined as a recipe block that will be compiled and then converged when the action is taken (when Resource is converged). The recipe has access to the resource's attributes and methods, as well as the Chef recipe DSL.

Resources in the action recipe may notify and subscribe to other resources within the action recipe, but cannot notify or subscribe to resources in the main Chef run.

Resource actions are inheritable: if resource A defines `action :create` and B is a subclass of A, B gets all of A's actions. Additionally, resource B can define `action :create` and call `super()` to invoke A's action code.

The first action defined (besides `:nothing`) will become the default action for the resource.

end

.action_class(&block) ⇒ Object

The action class is a `Chef::Provider` which is created at Resource class evaluation time when the Custom Resource is being constructed.

This happens the first time the ruby parser hits an `action` or an `action_class` method, the presence of either indiates that this is going to be a Chef-12.5 custom resource. If we never see one of these directives then we are constructing an old-style Resource+Provider or LWRP or whatevs.

If a block is passed, the action_class is always created and the block is run inside it.

.chef_version_for_provides(constraint) ⇒ Object

This API can be used for backcompat to do:

chef_version_for_provides “< 14.0” if defined?(:chef_version_for_provides)

For core chef versions that do not support chef_version: in provides lines.

Since resource_name calls provides the generally correct way of doing this is to do `chef_version_for_provides` first, then `resource_name` and then any additional options `provides` lines. Calling `resource_name` is somewhat important to have the canonical_dsl removed or else that'll stick around and chef_version won't get applied to it.

Once we no longer care about supporting chef < 14.4 then we can deprecate this API.

.identity_property(name = nil) ⇒ Symbol

Set the identity of this resource to a particular property.

This drives #identity, which returns data that uniquely refers to a given resource on the given node (in such a way that it can be correlated across Chef runs).

This method is unnecessary when declaring properties with `property`; properties can be added to identity during declaration with `identity: true`.

“`ruby property :x, identity: true # part of identity property :y # not part of identity “`

Raises:

  • (ArgumentError)

    If no arguments are passed and the resource has more than one identity property.

.is_custom_resource!Object

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

This sets the resource to being a custom resource, and does so in a way that automatically inherits to all subclasses via defining a method on the class (class variables and class instance variables don't have the correct semantics here, this is a poor man's activesupport class_attribute)

.preview_resource(value = nil) ⇒ Boolean

Set or return if this resource is in preview mode.

This only has value in the resource_inspector to mark a resource as being new-to-chef-core. Its meaning is probably more equivalent to “experimental” in that the API might change even in minor versions due to bugfixing and is NOT considered “stable” yet.

.provides(name, **options, &block) ⇒ Object

Mark this resource as providing particular DSL.

Resources have an automatic DSL based on their resource_name, equivalent to `provides :resource_name` (providing the resource on all OS's). If you declare a `provides` with the given resource_name, it replaces that provides (so that you can provide your resource DSL only on certain OS's).

.resource_for_node(short_name, node) ⇒ Object

Returns a resource based on a short_name and node

Parameters

end

.resource_matching_short_name(short_name) ⇒ Object

Returns the class with the given resource_name.

NOTE: Chef::Resource.resource_matching_short_name(:package) returns Chef::Resource::Package, while on rhel the API call Chef::Resource.resource_for_node(:package, node) will return Chef::Resource::YumPackage – which is probably what you really want. This API should most likely be removed or changed to call resource_for_node.

Parameters

Returns

<Chef::Resource>

The display name of this resource type, for printing purposes.

This also automatically calls “provides” to provide DSL with the given name.

resource_name defaults to your class name.

Call `resource_name nil` to remove the resource name (and any corresponding DSL).

#nameString

The name of this particular resource.

This special resource attribute is set automatically from the declaration of the resource, e.g.

execute 'Vitruvius' do
  command 'ls'
end

Will set the name to “Vitruvius”.

This is also used in to_s to show the resource name, e.g. `execute`.

This is also used for resource notifications and subscribes in the same manner.

This will coerce any object into a string via #to_s. Arrays are a special case so that `package [“foo”, “bar”]` becomes package[foo, bar] instead of the more awkward `package[[“foo”, “bar”]]` that #to_s would produce.

#not_if(command = nil, opts = {}, &block) ⇒ Object

A command or block that indicates whether to actually run this resource. The command or block is run just before the action actually executes, and the action will be skipped if the block returns true.

If a block is specified, it must return `false` in order for the Resource to be executed.

If a command is specified, the resource's #guard_interpreter will run the command and interpret the results according to `opts`. For example, the default `execute` resource will be treated as `false` if the command returns a non-zero exit code, and `true` if it returns 0. Thus, in the default case:

  • `not_if “your command”` will perform the action only if `your command`

returns a non-zero code.

  • `only_if “your command”, valid_exit_codes: [ 1, 2, 3 ]` will perform the action only if `your command` returns something other than 1, 2, or 3.

end

#notifies(action, resource_spec, timing = :delayed) ⇒ Object

Sets up a notification that will run a particular action on another resource if and when this resource is updated by an action.

If the action does not update this resource, the notification never triggers.

Only one resource may be specified per notification.

`delayed` notifications will only ever happen once per resource, so if multiple resources all notify a single resource to perform the same action, the action will only happen once. However, if they ask for different actions, each action will happen once, in the order they were updated.

`immediate` notifications will cause the action to be triggered once per notification, regardless of how many other resources have triggered the notification as well.

Examples:

Resource by string

file '/foo.txt' do
  content 'hi'
  notifies :create, 'file[/bar.txt]'
end
file '/bar.txt' do
  action :nothing
  content 'hi'
end

Resource by hash

file '/foo.txt' do
  content 'hi'
  notifies :create, file: '/bar.txt'
end
file '/bar.txt' do
  action :nothing
  content 'hi'
end

Direct Resource

bar = file '/bar.txt' do
  action :nothing
  content 'hi'
end
file '/foo.txt' do
  content 'hi'
  notifies :create, bar
end

If a command is specified, the resource's #guard_interpreter will run the command and interpret the results according to `opts`. For example, the default `execute` resource will be treated as `false` if the command returns a non-zero exit code, and `true` if it returns 0. Thus, in the default case:

The provider class for this resource.

If `action :x do … end` has been declared on this resource or its superclasses, this will return the `action_class`.

#should_skip?(action) ⇒ Boolean

Evaluates not_if and only_if conditionals. Returns a falsey value if any of the conditionals indicate that this resource should be skipped, i.e., if an only_if evaluates to false or a not_if evaluates to true.

If this resource should be skipped, returns the first conditional that “fails” its check. Subsequent conditionals are not evaluated, so in general it's not a good idea to rely on side effects from not_if or only_if commands/blocks being evaluated.

Also skips conditional checking when the action is :nothing

#subscribes(action, resources, timing = :delayed) ⇒ Object

Subscribes to updates from other resources, causing a particular action to run on this resource when the other resource is updated.

If multiple resources are specified, this resource action will be run if any of them change.

This notification will only trigger once, no matter how many other resources are updated (or how many actions are run by a particular resource).

Examples:

Resources by string

file '/foo.txt' do
  content 'hi'
  action :nothing
  subscribes :create, 'file[/bar.txt]'
end
file '/bar.txt' do
  content 'hi'
end

Direct resource

bar = file '/bar.txt' do
  content 'hi'
end
file '/foo.txt' do
  content 'hi'
  action :nothing
  subscribes :create, '/bar.txt'
end

Multiple resources by string

file '/foo.txt' do
  content 'hi'
  action :nothing
  subscribes :create, [ 'file[/bar.txt]', 'file[/baz.txt]' ]
end
file '/bar.txt' do
  content 'hi'
end
