I'm just starting out with chef, and I'm following http://gettingstartedwithchef.com. One thing it suggests is using
knife cookbook site download $COOKBOOK_NAME to get community cookbooks. However sometimes they come with dependencies, and I then have to wait untill Vagrant tells me there's a problem and then manually download and install the packages one by one.
Is there anyway to get knife to download all the dependencies that a cookbook needs? It would speed things up.
knife cookbook site install, but that wants to do a pile of git stuff, which I don't want to do. I want to download the cookbook (which also means dependencies), I don't want to be making commits.
Is this possible?
