Backwards-compatible fix for issue when using both the python cookbook and this one. Issue:


Unintended release, thanks to Chef Supermarket's crappiness.


New resource 'anaconda_nbservice', for running an IPython notebook server. Somewhat experimental, it's fairly basic but usable.


Hotfix release:


Major cleanup and basic usability fixes (read: almost not sure why it worked before, if it even did):

  • (core, breaking) Renamed anaconda::shell-conveniences to anaconda::shell_conveniences
  • (core, breaking) No longer uses the python cookbook; this caused problems after anaconda was installed
  • (core) shell_conveniences now installs into /etc/profile.d, so it is automatically sourced by login shells
  • (core) Ubuntu 14.04 is now a supported (and fully tested) platform
  • (core) Ubuntu 14.04 is now the default platform used in the sample Vagrantfile
  • (core) Vagrantfile now correctly installs Anaconda, like the README said it was supposed to
  • (docs) various readme updates
  • (testing) Complete coverage of all resources in chefspec
  • (testing) Removed Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04 from kitchen testing; there's something wrong with apt-get on these images. It appears to be something about the apt keys, but they're just removed from testing for now.


Bugfix release:

  • Fixes related to install script and permissions (#5). Courtesy @mwalton236


New resource: anaconda_package, for installing and removing packages via conda
