chef-cookbook-git's Introduction


Installs git and optionally sets up a git server as a daemon under runit.


Ohai and Chef:

  • Ohai: 6.14.0+

This cookbook makes use of node['platform_family'] to simplify platform selection logic. This attribute was introduced in Ohai v0.6.12.


  • Debian/Ubuntu
  • ArchLinux
  • Windows
  • Mac OSX


  • runit

Windows Dependencies

The windows_package resource from the Windows cookbook is required to install the git package on Windows.



The following attributes are platform-specific.


  • node['git']['version'] - git version to install
  • node['git']['url'] - URL to git package
  • node['git']['checksum'] - package SHA256 checksum
  • node['git']['display_name'] - windows_package resource Display Name (makes the package install idempotent)

Mac OS X

  • node['git']['osx_dmg']['url'] - URL to git package
  • node['git']['osx_dmg']['checksum'] - package SHA256 checksum


  • node['git']['prefix'] - git install directory
  • node['git']['version'] - git version to install
  • node['git']['url'] - URL to git tarball
  • node['git']['checksum'] - tarball SHA256 checksum



Installs base git packages based on platform.


Sets up a git daemon to provide a server.


Installs git from source.


Installs git client on Windows


This cookbook primarily installs git core packages. It can also be used to serve git repositories.

To install git client (all supported platforms):

include_recipe 'git'

To install git server:

include_recipe "git::server"

This creates the directory /srv/git and starts a git daemon, exporting all repositories found. Repositories need to be added manually, but will be available once they are created.
