sous-chef 0.10.4

A small webapp for viewing and searching Chef nodes

Latest Version: 2.2.0

A small webapp for viewing Chef nodes and other metadata. Currently supports nodes, roles, and environments, as well as package version information (see below).

Usage

Run Sous-chef using Gunicorn:

gunicorn 'sous_chef:create_app()'

Configuration

Sous-chef will read it’s configuration from one of two places, depending on how it was installed:

# Global install
/usr/var/sous_chef-instance/config.py

# Virtualenv install
$VIRTUALENV/var/sous_chef-instance/config.py

An example configuration file might look like this:

# The URL of the Chef server
CHEF_URL = 'http://chef.example.com'

# The client name and key to use
CHEF_CLIENT = 'sous'
CHEF_KEY = '/usr/var/sous_chef-instance/sous.pem'

If these are not set, PyChef’s autoconfigure function is used as a fallback, and will try and load it’s configuration from ~/.chef/knife.rb or /etc/chef/client.rb.

Package versions

Sous-chef will display package metadata from nodes if availible. It expects this data to be in the following format:

"packages": {
        "<package_type>": {
                "<package_name>": "<package_version",
                ...
        },
        ...
}

For example, an RPM Ohai plugin could set the following node attributes:

"packages": {
        "rpm": {
                "package-one": "0.1.0",
                "pacakge-two": "2.0.1"
        }
}

Debug mode

The app can be run in debug mode by using the create_debug_app function:

gunicorn 'sous_chef:create_debug_app()'

The flask-debugtoolbar package is availible, the DebugToolbar extension will be used.

Installation

Install Sous-chef and Gunicorn with:

pip install 'sous-chef[deploy]'

Requirements

Requires Flask and PyChef. Gunicorn is the simplest method of deployment, but is not a requirement (allowing alternate WSGI servers to be used). Optionally uses Flask Debug Toolbar using the debug application.

Compatibility

Targets Python 2.6 and 2.7.

PyChef is currently Python 2 only, but if or when it is availible for Python 3 Sous-chef should have no problems.
