       foodcritic - lint tool for chef cookbooks


       foodcritic [options...] cookbook...

       foodcritic [options...] --list


       foodcritic makes it easier to flag problems in your Chef cookbooks that will cause Chef to
       blow up when you attempt to converge. This is about faster feedback.

       Each cookbook path specified will be examined for common problems and poor style.


       -t, --tags TAGS
              Only check against rules with the specified tags. Prefix tags with  a  tilde  ~  to
              exclude rules.

       -l, --list
              Do  not  perform  a lint check; instead simply list the rules that would be enabled
              based on the defaults and the rule selection options (-t, -I)

       -f, --epic-fail TAGS
              Exit non-zero if any of the specified tags are matched. Use the pseudo-tag  any  to
              fail if any tag is matched.

       -c, --chef-version VERSION
              Only check against rules valid for this version of Chef.

       -B, --cookbook-path
              Cookbook path(s) to check.

       -C, --[no-]context
              Show lines matched against rather than the default summary.

       -E, --environment-path
              Environment path(s) to check.

       -I, --include PATH
              Additional rule file path(s) to load.

       -R, --role-path
              Role path(s) to check.

       -S, --search-grammar PATH
              Specify  grammar to use when validating search syntax. (Default: the grammar of any
              installed Chef)

       -V, --version
              Display the foodcritic version.

       -X, --exclude PATH
              Exclude path(s) from being linted.


       By default, foodcritic will always return 0.

       If --epic-fail is specified, then foodcritic will return 3 if any tags are matched.
