Hello, this is Joseph Holsten & Dan Webb from Sous Chefs. We’ve had quite a year, so I thought I’d summarize the major moments. Here we go!
2018 was a pretty big year in Sous-Chefs, we started on OpenCollective to raise funds for our core contributors. Many hours go into rewriting, maintaining, and reviewing pull requests. It’s a great way to give back to those that empower you and your company!
We moved our cookbook testing from TravisCI to CircleCI accross the board, for reliability and speed reasons. We were one of the first organisatons to adopt Orbs. Orbs are a way of reusing commands and more importantly yaml, without losing the expressiveness that comes with CircleCI. Check ours out here.
Postgresql- This was the biggest release of the year, Completely rewritten with custom resources and a full unit and functional test suite. (@damacus/@martinisoft)
Redisio- Major release & new maintainers! (@tas50/@majormoses/@shoekstra)
vscode- First version of the vscode cookbook was released by (@Xorima)
sc-chrubyReleased late in 2018 by @damacus
Looking for an interesting challenge
The following cookbooks are currently underloved, but with a small number of community members. We know they’ve provided value to poeple in the past, but require some love.
Now included in Chef 14
swap cookbooks are now included in Chef 14!
We’ve deprecated the mac_os_x cookbook in favour of the excellently written MacOS cookbook from Microsoft.
Too Many To Note
We’ve done a lot of releases in the past year, here’s an absolutely huge list of all the “minor” releases.
