ssh wrappers to transparently use chef node names instead of hostnames

Project description

Inspired by ec2-ssh from instagram, this uses the pychef library to allow you to address your hosts by their chef node name instead of the dns name.

This differs from knife ssh because these tools operate with interactive shells, and are meant for working with 1 node at a time.


You need to have an installed and configured chef client on your machine. The code uses the pychef autoconfigure() to discover and load the chef configuration


chssh node1 # ssh to chef node node1

chssh user@node1 # ssh as user to chef node node1

chscp file user@node1:path # scp file to chef node node1

chscp user@node1:path . # scp file from chef node node1
