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.

  • Workaround for versions of chef with a bug in the data bag search. Submitted by James Walker.


  • Improve attribute handling so that the value can be false.
  • Add utility method RealityForge::SearchTools.search_and_deep_merge to merge a search result into a hash and return it.
  • Support a get_attribute helper method on RealityForge::AttributeTools
  • Add support for passing Mash instances into deep_merge and ensure_attribute methods of RealityForge::AttributeTools
  • Add support for setting values into Mash values via RealityForge::AttributeTools.set_attribute and deprecate RealityForge::AttributeTools.set_attribute_on_node.


  • Extract attribute related helpers into the class RealityForge::AttributeTools and deprecate the old versions.
  • Add a utility method to ensure attributes are present. i.e. Chef::AttributeChecker.ensure_attribute(node, 'iris.version')
  • Add a utility class for accessing configuration for "services". Useful for storing configuration in a node or data bags as a poor mans service registry.
  • Update Chef::SearchBlender.blend_search_results_into_node to use partial search where available.


  • Add utility method to blend attribute value into path via Chef::AttributeBlender.blend_attribute_into_node


  • Chef 11 compatibility fixes.


  • Declare the notifying_action as part of a provider as the method should only be used in LWRPs. This avoid polluting the Object class with unnecessary methods.


  • Initial release.
