Hi everyone,

I'm trying to add a gem dependency to a library. I found a couple conversations talking about using resources in libraries in my travels:

In both, the most reasonable advice is to create an instance of the resource's class and call #run_action(:whatever) to get it to execute immediately. From my testing, this doesn't work, with the problem specifically being this code snippet and error: https://gist.github.com/notnmeyer/04bc1c0be0e41504cd62

My first thought was to pass it run_context... But there's no run_context at this point for me to pass to the resource's constructor.

To demonstrate in further detail, I put together a quick cookbook with a Test Kitchen suite: https://github.com/notnmeyer/gem-dep

Any thoughts? What's the proper way to immediately execute a resource during compile time?
