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.

Coverage Status

A Chef cookbook to install the Divvy desktop manager.


This cookbook supports all the current platform and distribution methods
offered by the folks behind Divvy (an OS X App Store app and direct site
downloads for both OS X and Windows).

It offers recipe-based and resource-based installs. A resource-based install
from the Mac App Store requires an already-open instance of the mac_app_store

On either supported platform, a user must be signed in for the install to
complete successfully.


Either add the default recipe to your run_list, or implement the resource in
a recipe of your own.



Installs Divvy (from the Mac App Store or a Windows direct download by
default), sets it to start on login, and starts it up.
