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.

Deis Cookbook

The opdemand/deis-cookbook project
contains Chef recipes for provisioning Deis nodes.
To get started with your own private PaaS, check out the
Deis project.

Build Status


The Deis cookbook is designed to work with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. While other Ubuntu or Debian distros may work, they have not been tested.


Deis depends on the following cookbooks:

  • apt - for managing Ubuntu PPAs
  • sudo - for managing /etc/sudoers.d
  • rsyslog - for configuring log routing and aggregation

Berkshelf is used for managing cookbook dependencies.

bundle install    # to install required gems, including berkshelf
berks install     # to install cookbooks to the berkshelf directory
berks upload      # to upload cookbooks to your chef server


TODO: List Deis cookbook attributes.



The controller recipe will create a complete Deis controller on a single node including:

  • PostgreSQL database
  • Django API Server
  • RabbitMQ installation
  • Celery worker service
  • Nginx site for API
  • Docker daemon
  • Docker-based build system
  • Nginx site for hosting build "slugs"
  • Rsyslog server

The controller will iterate over the deis-build databag and configure gitosis access controls in order to restrict git push access to repositories.


The runtime recipe will prepare a node for hosting Docker containers as part of a Deis runtime layer. This recipe will configure:

  • Docker daemon
  • Buildstep Docker image
  • Rsyslog client

The runtime recipe will iterate over the deis-formations databag and configure and start upstart daemons for any Docker containers assigned to this node.


The proxy recipe will prepare a node for routing traffic to containers in a Deis runtime layer. This recipe will configure:

  • Nginx site
  • Rsyslog client

The proxy recipe will iterate over the deis-formations databag and configure Nginx backends for any Docker containers assigned to a given formation.


The destination for rsyslog clients is determined by a Chef search for recipe[deis::controller], and using the ipaddress attribute.
