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.

Cronic Cookbook README

Cookbook Version
Build Status
Coverage Status

A cookbook for managing cron jobs under Cronic, a simple cron script wrapper.

Cronic lets you write cron scripts that actually output content, but doesn't
actually output anything to stdout/stderr unless the exit code is non-zero.
This makes it significantly easier to debug cron scripts when they do go bad.

For more info:


This cookbook requires at least Chef 12. It is tested against the two most
recent major Chef versions (currently 13.x and 12.x) and the two most recent
major releases of Ubuntu (16.04 and 14.04), Debian (9 and 8), RHEL (7 and 6),
and Amazon Linux (2 and 1).


Declare instances of the cronic resource in recipes the same way you would
the cron resource.



This recipe is empty, only included so that an include_recipe 'cronic' will
do nothing instead of raising an error.



A custom resource for managing cron jobs to be run via Cronic. Note that the
cronic resource uses the built-in cron resource under the covers, so writes
jobs to the crontab and not /etc/cron.d/.


cronic 'Restart Nginx monthly' do
  command 'service nginx restart'
  user 'root'
  minute 0
  hour 4
  day 1
  month '*'
  weekday '*'
  action :create

All actions and properties should be the same as for Chef's built-in
cron resource.


Action Description
:create Create the cron job
:delete Delete the cron job


Property Default Description
command Resource name The command to run via Cronic
minute '*' The minute(s) to run the job
hour '*' The hour(s) to run the job
day '*' The day(s) to run the job
month '*' The month(s) to run the job
weekday '*' The day(s) of the week to run the job
user 'root' The user as whom to run the job
