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.

  • default['conserver']['conf_dir'] - The directory to conserver config files.

To connect to the server as a client:

$ console -M `node['conserver']['server']['master']` -p `node['conserver']['server']['port']` -l `node['conserver']['access']['user']` `node['hostname']`


$ console -M -p 3109 -l admin o11r1

To simplify add the following to the users .consolerc. This should probably be added to the cookbook at some point.

config * {
  master `node['conserver']['server']['master']`;
  port `node['conserver']['server']['port']`;
  username `node['conserver']['access']['user']`;

The command now becomes:

$ console o11r1
