chef-gen-flavors 0.9.1

chef-gen-flavors is a framework for creating custom templates for the 'chef generate' command provided by ChefDK. This gem simply provides a framework; templates are provided by separate gems, which you can host privately for use within your organization or publicly for the Chef community to use. [chef-gen-flavor-base]( is a base class that makes it easy to compose a flavor from reusable snippets of functionality, and using it is highly recommended. Using chef-gen-flavors on its own is only suitable if you already have a template which is a copy of the skeleton provided by ChefDK. At present this is focused primarily on providing templates for generation of cookbooks, as this is where most organization-specific customization takes place. Support for the other artifacts that ChefDK can generate may work, but is not the focus of early releases.
