Chef RubyGems

When a Chef installation is detected, this bucket caches its embedded gems. Most of these gems are part of the Chef omnibus package but sometimes cookbooks need to install extra gems to run within the context of a Chef recipe using the chef_gem resource.

The embedded Chef gem location is returned by running the /opt/chef/embedded/bin/gem env gemdir command.

To manually enable it:

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  config.vm.box = 'some-box-using-chef-provisioner'
  config.cache.enable :chef_gem
end
