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.

The deploy_wrapper cookbook provides a definition that sets up an ssh key and ssh wrapper script for use with deploy or deploy_revision resources.


  • ssh_wrapper_dir - the ssh wrapper script will be written to this directory, required.
  • ssh_key_dir - the ssh key file will be written to this directory, required.
  • ssh_key_data - the private key data to write into the ssh key file, required.
  • owner - the owner for ssh wrapper and key files, defaults to 'root'
  • group - the group ownership for ssh wrapper and key files, defaults to 'root'
  • sloppy - a boolean which toggles whether or not the ssh wrapper script will attempt to validate the repo's ssh key. This parameter defaults to false, but the default setting will probably cause problems when executing deploy resources if ~/.ssh/known_hosts has not been pre-populated manually or via another cookbook.


Should work on any platform where Chef runs. Tested on Ubuntu.



Usage example

include_recipe 'deploy_wrapper'

deploy_wrapper 'myapp' do
    owner 'root'
    group 'root'
    ssh_wrapper_dir '/opt/example/shared'
    ssh_key_dir '/root/.ssh'
    ssh_key_data secrets['deploy_keys']['myapp']
    sloppy true

deploy_revision '/opt/example/myapp' do
    revision 'master'
    repo ''
    ssh_wrapper '/opt/example/shared/'
