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.

This cookbook examines all of the cookbooks in a node's run_list and extracts the cookbook versions. These are saved into node attributes under the 'cookbook_versions' key, like so:

cookbook_versions => {
  "cookbook_versions_test": "0.1.0",
  "cookbook_versions": "0.1.0"

NOTE: This cookbook_versions resource should be run at the end of a chef-client run, or else recipes may modify the run_list and that won't be reflected in the node attributes.


You can use the resource directly, or include the default recipe which simply calls the resource

cookbook_versions 'whatever'

What is included

By default, cookbook_versions includes only cookbooks that have a recipe in the run_list.
This will not include cookbooks that provide resources but don't have recipes.
You can change this behavior by either using the cookbook_versions::all recipe instead of the default recipe in your run_list, or by passing the all_cookbooks true attribute to the resource:

cookbook_versions 'whatever' do
  all_cookbooks true

Dependent cookbooks

This cookbook has no specified dependencies.

Contingent cookbooks

There are no cookbooks that are contingent upon this one.
