Chef Habitat Glossary

Chef Habitat is a framework comprised of multiple components: Chef Habitat Builder; the Supervisor; an HTTP interface on that supervisor to report package status; a communication model for disseminating rumors through a supervisor ring, and others.

This section will delve into each of these major components to give a shared vocabulary on what they are, what they do, and how they work together. For information about the underlying design goals that motivated these components, see Why Chef Habitat?.
