chef-rewind Chef Tool
This adds a simple function to the Chef library scope to rewind or unwind an existing resource. If the given resource does not exist, a Chef::Exceptions::ResourceNotFound exception will be raised.
These functions are designed to assist the library cookbook pattern.
Effectively, rewind/unwind resource allows you to monkeypatch a cookbook that you would rather not modify directly. It will modify some properties of a resource, during the complile phase, before chef-client actually starts the run phase.
