Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Typically, you'll want to add the default recipe to a role's run list, then add to the paths dictionary with locations to ignore. Remember that paths use regex syntax, not glob syntax, so "all files in /opt/foo" is expressed as "/opt/foo/.*" not "/opt/foo/*".

  "name": "foo",
  "run_list": [
  "override_attributes": {
    "aide": {
      "paths": {
        "/opt/foo/.*": "!"
