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.

Fixes a number of minor operating system-based annoyances. There are recipes per platform, currently Ubuntu and Red Hat. Feel free to fork and submit your own patches.



Looks at the node's platform and includes the proper recipe, then removes annoyances from the node's run list on completion.


Removes any preexisting firewall rules, turns off SELinux, uninstalls apache if it's on for some reason and removes /root/.bash_logout if it exists. Red Hat, CentOS, Fedora and Scientific Linux are currently supported.


Does an "apt-get update", turns off apparmor and turns off byobu. Removes whoopsie, popularity-contest, and unity-lens-shopping if this ever got on a server. Currently Ubuntu-only.


Include the annoyances recipe in your run list and it will make the various changes, then remove itself from the node's run list on completion. If you want to keep enforcing the annoyances with each run, directly include the operating system-specific recipe instead of the default recipe.
