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.

However, not all platforms that this cookbook will work on have supported packages from the repository. See supported platforms. Users may need to override attributes in roles or wrapper cookbooks to get this to work, or write their own cookbooks entirely.

A Note About Proxies

If an HTTP proxy is required to reach the configured repository, then that can be managed outside this cookbook using an apt preferences file. A very simple example can be rendered with a file resource:

file '/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01proxy' do
  content 'Acquire::http::Proxy "";'

See the apt preferences documentation for more information and configurable options.
