- [Instructor] I wanted to mention that I'm using…Sublime Text to actually display…the contents of these files.…I hope that isn't confusing for you.…Feel free to look up the Sublime Text Editor…if you want to duplicate what you see on my screen.…We've been looking at the metadata file…where we've been adding a dependency on the httpd cookbook.…This will give us access to those custom resources…we saw on the cookbook's readme page.…Now, I'm going to open up the web recipe…that we've been scaffolding out.…
