Foreman and chef

Is there any work done with foreman and chef?

No.

It would be interesting to see something like this though.

I would love to see something like that happening.

I would assume that we would need a chef specific inventrory (due for
ohai support for complex types (arrays/hashes)), we might be able to
transfer a chef report into foreman reporting structure, but that
needs to be evaluated.

all the rest I would assume should more or less match.

anyone interested working on this?

cheers,
Ohad

That sucks,

I really wanted to use foreman but the people I am working with are more
inclined to work in the kitchen than the play room.;(

built in execution engine similar to mcollective, in addition to
configuration management.)

(Salt’s facter/ohai equivalent are called grains.)

That said, Chef is probably higher priority, but if whoever takes on this
project were to look at salt as well, it would probably help with
abstraction of the interface.
