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.

The following Chef cookbooks are dependencies:

  • ark


  • node['ant']['version'] - defaults to 1.8.2
  • node['ant']['home']- defaults to /usr/local/ant
  • node['ant']['url'] - the download url for the ant binary zip
  • node['ant']['checksum'] - the sha256 checksum for the ant binary zip downloaded in the url
  • node['ant']['install_method'] - the installation recipe to use, can be "package" (default) or "source".
  • node['ant']['libraries'] - a hash of libraries and their URLs installed with the "ant_library" LWRP in the install_source recipe. The hash is the form {"library-name" => ""}




  • :install - (Default) Install the ant library specified.


  • name - name of the library
  • url - url where the jar for the library can be downloaded

NOTE This cookbook requires java to be installed. You can include the java community cookbook and use the default recipe along with specific attributes to install, or you can install using your own cookbook.

Include a recipe in your wrapper cookbook where you want Apache Ant installed.

NOTE Ivy is not available with CentOS 5-6 package manager. You must use install_source recipe for these OS versions.
