In the News
- A zesty Chef server API wrapper that lets you easily integrate your apps with a Chef server. Spice provides support for the Chef API and has recently undergone a complete rewrite!
- Returned results are now full interactive objects and not just hashes. Create, update, and destroy resources with an ORM-like interface.
- Note: this version of Spice is a major version bump, which means it is not backwards-compatible with previous versions.
- Support for Ubuntu 12.04, aka Precise Pangolin support
- Chef cookbook for orchestration of easyapache upgrades for cPanel
- Installs/Configures smbfs and adds mount points according to data driven pattern
More Cookbook Updates
Here’s a list of other cookbooks that were updated recently:

Bryan, have you noticed the recent trend with adding TravisCI build status widgets to a cookbook’s README? Most of them are using TravisCI to run Foodcritic tests. About 30% of the cookbooks we’ve mentioned today have TravisCI integration. I think you recently set this up for the minitest-handler cookbook. How difficult was it?
