Knife plugin to generate README.md from metadata.rb

I've written a Knife plugin to generate a skeleton README.md file from a cookbook's metadata.rb file:


The plugin helps to

  • create the first bits of documentation you can build upon
  • write documentation that is consistent among your or your team's cookbooks
  • implement the DRY/SPOT rule (metadata.rb is the authoritative source of information)
