Getting Started

Expeditor is a release management utility built by Chef Software, Inc. to manage all the various software projects it maintains—open source or otherwise. It handles repetitive tasks like version bumping, CHANGELOG generation and release build triggering. Please reach out in the #expeditor channel in the Chef Community Slack if you have any questions.

Managing the lifecycle of a software project contained within a GitHub repository is the “bread and butter” of Expeditor. Using Expeditor you can automate a number of otherwise manual processes, ensuring that normal activities such as version bumping and changelog generation happen consistently.

This guide will walk you through getting Expeditor set up in your GitHub repository, as well as document the primitives included in the utility.
