In this video, Robin talks about how properly implement wrapper cookbooks within your Chef environment.
- [Instructor] Following up on our discussion…about the Chef Supermarket I mentioned that…I'm not going to have you go ahead and download…the cookbook, haproxy, directly from the Supermarket…and begin making modifications.…The reason for this is that we don't want you…to divorce yourself from the source code.…In github terminology this is commonly called,…"forking an upstream codebase."…What this means is, don't download any cookbooks…directly and just start changing them.…
Otherwise, you'll miss out on bug fixes…and other new versions of this cookbook in the future.…I don't want you to just download community code.…There's a better way instead.…With a Supermarket cookbook we'll often want…to actually define our own specifics for how…that cookbook should function within our infrastructure.…We can do this by actually creating our own cookbook,…called a "wrapper cookbook."…What this is going to allow us to do is…actually call haproxy as a dependency.…
If you're confused, I haven't told you yet…that cookbooks can actually call other cookbooks.…
