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.

Bitcoin Cookbook

Build Status

This cookbook downloads, installs and configures Bitcoin as a full node.



In order to actively contribute to the Bitcoin network, you will need to open your TCP port 8333.
This cookbook does not make sure your port 8333 is open since this is very much dependant on your networking setup.

bitcoin::package recipe

Configures repository from and installs pre-packaged binary with bitcoin systemd service.

You can run a Bitcoin fork/variant like this:

    "bitcoin": {
      "variant": "unlimited"

The valid variants are core, unlimited, abc, xt and btcd.

bitcoin::binary recipe

Downloads the binary and copies it along with an systemd service script.

bitcoin::source recipe

Downloads the release from GitHub and compiles it along with an systemd service script.

Caution: you'll need at least 1 GB of free RAM to compile it (setting make_options to -j1 can help too).

bitcoin::git recipe

Caution: this will fetch the HEAD revision and might break without warnings.
