PROGRAM:

NAME


knife-cookbook-site - The man page for the knife cookbook site subcommand.

The Cookbooks Site API is used to provide access to the cookbooks community hosted at
https://supermarket.getchef.com/cookbooks. All of the cookbooks in the community are
accessible through a RESTful API located at
https://supermarket.getchef.com/api/v1/cookbooks by using any of the supported endpoints.
In most cases, using knife and the knife cookbook site sub-command (and any of its
arguments) is the recommended method of interacting with these cookbooks, but in some
cases, using the Cookbooks Site API directly may make sense.

The knife cookbook site subcommand is used to interact with cookbooks that are located at
https://supermarket.getchef.com/cookbooks. A user account is required for any community
actions that write data to this site. The following arguments do not require a user
account: download, search, install, and list.

COMMON OPTIONS


The following options may be used with any of the arguments available to the knife
cookbook site subcommand:

--chef-zero-port PORT
The port on which chef-zero will listen.

-c CONFIG_FILE, --config CONFIG_FILE
The configuration file to use.

-d, --disable-editing
Use to prevent the $EDITOR from being opened and to accept data as-is.

--defaults
Use to have knife use the default value instead of asking a user to provide one.

-e EDITOR, --editor EDITOR
The $EDITOR that is used for all interactive commands.

-E ENVIRONMENT, --environment ENVIRONMENT
The name of the environment. When this option is added to a command, the command
will run only against the named environment.

-F FORMAT, --format FORMAT
The output format: summary (default), text, json, yaml, and pp.

-h, --help
Shows help for the command.

-k KEY, --key KEY
The private key that knife will use to sign requests made by the API client to the
Chef server.

--[no-]color
Use to view colored output.

--print-after
Use to show data after a destructive operation.

-s URL, --server-url URL
The URL for the Chef server.

-u USER, --user USER
The user name used by knife to sign requests made by the API client to the Chef
server. Authentication will fail if the user name does not match the private key.

-V, --verbose
Set for more verbose outputs. Use -VV for maximum verbosity.

-v, --version
The version of the chef-client.

-y, --yes
Use to respond to all confirmation prompts with "Yes". knife will not ask for
confirmation.

-z, --local-mode
Use to run the chef-client in local mode. This allows all commands that work
against the Chef server to also work against the local chef-repo.

DOWNLOAD


The download argument is used to download a cookbook from the community website. A
cookbook will be downloaded as a tar.gz archive and placed in the current working
directory. If a cookbook (or cookbook version) has been deprecated and the --force option
is not used, knife will alert the user that the cookbook is deprecated and then will
provide the name of the most recent non-deprecated version of that cookbook.

Syntax

This argument has the following syntax:

$ knife cookbook site download COOKBOOK_NAME [COOKBOOK_VERSION] (options)

Options

This argument has the following options:

COOKBOOK_VERSION
The version of a cookbook to be downloaded. If a cookbook has only one version,
this option does not need to be specified. If a cookbook has more than one version
and this option is not specified, the most recent version of the cookbook will be
downloaded.

-f FILE, --file FILE
The file to which a cookbook download is written.

--force
Use to overwrite an existing directory.

Examples

To download the cookbook getting-started, enter:

$ knife cookbook site download getting-started

to return something like:

Downloading getting-started from the cookbooks site at version 0.3.0 to
/Users/sdanna/opscodesupport/getting-started-0.3.0.tar.gz
Cookbook saved: /Users/sdanna/opscodesupport/getting-started-0.3.0.tar.gz

INSTALL


The install argument is used to install a cookbook that has been downloaded from the
community site to a local git repository . This action uses the git version control system
in conjunction with the https://supermarket.getchef.com/cookbooks site to install
community-contributed cookbooks to the local chef-repo. Using this argument does the
following:

1. A new "pristine copy" branch is created in git for tracking the upstream.

2. All existing versions of a cookbook are removed from the branch.

3. The cookbook is downloaded from https://supermarket.getchef.com/cookbooks in the
tar.gz format.

4. The downloaded cookbook is untarred and its contents are committed to git and a tag
is created.

5. The "pristine copy" branch is merged into the master branch.

This process allows the upstream cookbook in the master branch to be modified while
letting git maintain changes as a separate patch. When an updated upstream version becomes
available, those changes can be merged while maintaining any local modifications.

Syntax

This argument has the following syntax:

$ knife cookbook site install COOKBOOK_NAME [COOKBOOK_VERSION] (options)

Options

This argument has the following options:

-b, --use-current-branch
Use to ensure that the current branch is used.

-B BRANCH, --branch BRANCH
The name of the default branch. This will default to the master branch.

COOKBOOK_VERSION
The version of the cookbook to be installed. If a version is not specified, the
most recent version of the cookbook will be installed.

-D, --skip-dependencies
Use to ensure that all cookbooks to which the installed cookbook has a dependency
will not be installed.

-o PATH:PATH, --cookbook-path PATH:PATH
The directory in which cookbooks are created. This can be a colon-separated path.

Examples

To install the cookbook getting-started, enter:

$ knife cookbook site install getting-started

to return something like:

Installing getting-started to /Users/sdanna/opscodesupport/.chef/../cookbooks
Checking out the master branch.
Creating pristine copy branch chef-vendor-getting-started
