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.

Changes a setting in the bbwin.cfg config file. This resource will add the setting if it does not exist, and will
add any options that dont already exist. If the section to which it is being added does not exist it will
be created as well. Any setting not specified will remain unchanged. You may want to use a template for the config
file if you have many settings that need to be changed. Its probably not a good idea to use both a template for the
bbwin.cfg as well as this resource, however, as they will probably conflict.


  • :set (default) - sets the seting to the value and options specified, or creates the setting if it does not exist
