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.

Chef-DK Cookbook

Cookbook Version Build Status

A cookbook for installing the Chef Development Kit.


As of this writing, Chef-DK is available for RHEL/CentOS/etc. 6, Ubuntu 12.04/13.10, OS X 10.9.x, and Windows 7/8/2008/2012. Each of these platforms is supported by this cookbook.

In some cases, platforms that aren't officially supported by Chef-DK may still function. For example, this cookbook can be used to install the OS X package onto 10.10 systems, or the Ubuntu package onto 14.04 systems.

This cookbook consumes the dmg cookbook in order to support OS X installs.


This cookbook can be implemented either by calling its resource directly, or adding the recipe that wraps it to your run_list.



Calls the chef_dk resource to do a package install



Attributes are provided to allow overriding of the package version or URL the default recipe installs:

default['chef_dk']['version'] = 'latest'
default['chef_dk']['package_url'] = nil



Wraps the fetching of the package file from S3 and the package installation into a single resource:

chef_dk '<A RESOURCE NAME>' do
    version '1.2.3-4'
    package_url ''
    action :install
  • version - An optional version to install (default is 'latest')
  • package_url - An optional override package URL (default is determined at run time based on the OS and desired version)
  • action - Action to perform (default is :install, also supports :uninstall)

Note: A version and package_url cannot be used together


This cookbook includes a provider for each of its supported platform families. By default, the chef_dk resource will determine a provider to used based on the platform on which Chef is running.


A generic provider of all non-platform-specific functionality.


Provides the Ubuntu platform support.


Provides the Mac OS X platform support.


Provides the RHEL and RHELalike platform support.
