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.

Airflow Chef Cookbook

Installs and configures Airflow workflow management platform. More information about Airflow can be found here:

Supported Platforms

Ubuntu (Tested on 14.04, 16.04).
CentOS (Tested on 7.2).


The Airflow all and oracle packages are not supported, this is due the Oracle package having dependencies which cannot be automatically installed. I will look how to solve this and add support for those packages at later stage.
