Do you wish your test-kitchen runs were faster? Do I ever have the gem for you!
kitchen-sync provides alternate file transfer implementations for test-kitchen, most of which are faster than the default, thus speeding up your test runs.
chef gem install kitchen-sync and then set your transport to
transport: name: sftp
Available Transfer Methods
The default mode uses SFTP for file transfers, as well as a helper script to avoid recopying files that are already present on the test host. If SFTP is disabled, this will automatically fall back to the SCP mode.
By default this will use the Chef omnibus Ruby, you can customize the path to
transport: name: sftp ruby_path: /usr/bin/ruby
The Rsync mode is based on the work done by Mikhail Bautin.
This is the fastest mode, but it does have a few downsides. The biggest is that
you must be using
ssh-agent and have an identity loaded for it to use. It also
requires that rsync be available on the remote side. Consider this implementation
more experimental than
sftp at this time.
Windows is not specifically supported at this time, though if you have an SSH server it will probably work. There is no support for WinRM.
Upgrading from 1.x
As of version 2.0, kitchen-sync uses Test Kitchen's modular transport system
rather than monkey patch overrides. To upgrade, remove the
<% require 'kitchen-sync' %>
.kitchen.yml and add the transport configuration mentioned above.
$KITCHEN_SYNC_MODE environment variable is no longer needed as configuration
can happen in the normal Yaml file.
