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-server-ingredient Cookbook

This cookbook is used by CHEF in Hosted Chef to manage Chef Server and
Chef Server add-on component installation and reconfiguration. It
provides no useful recipes. Instead, wrapper cookbooks should be
created using the resource that this cookbook contains.

As of initial release, the cookbook borrows from, but does not use
Packagecloud's cookbook to set up the
repository where we publish Chef Server packages.


  • packagecloud


  • Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04, 14.04
  • CentOS 6



A "chef server ingredient" is the core package itself, or any add-on
component published by CHEF. This resource manages the installation
and running the ctl reconfigure of individual packages.


  • install - (default) Configures the packagecloud apt repository and installs the specified package.
  • uninstall - Uninstalls the specified package.
  • remove - Alias for uninstall
  • reconfigure - Performs the ctl reconfigure command for the package.


  • package_name: (name attribute) The name of the package. Should correspond to the published package names (chef-server-core, opscode-manage, etc).
  • ctl_command: The "ctl" command, e.g., chef-server-ctl. This should be automatically detected by the library helper method chef_server_ctl_command, but may need to be specified if something changes, like a new add-on is made available.
  • options: Options passed to the package resource used for installation.
  • master_token: Used for packagecloud private repositories.
  • repository: Name of the repository where the packages are located on packagecloud. Default chef/stable.
  • version: Package version, e.g., 12.0.0-rc.6-1. Do not use if specifying package_source. Default nil.
  • package_source: Full path to a location where the package is located. If present, this file is used for installing the package. Default nil.
  • timeout: The amount of time (in seconds) to wait to fetch the installer before timing out. Default: default timeout of the Chef package resource.
