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.

Testing and Development


Here's how you can quickly get testing or developing against the cookbook thanks to Vagrant and Berkshelf.

vagrant plugin install vagrant-berkshelf
vagrant plugin install vagrant-cachier
vagrant plugin install vagrant-omnibus
git clone git://
cd chef-docker
vagrant up BOX # BOX being ubuntu1204, ubuntu1210, or ubuntu1304

You can then SSH into the running VM using the vagrant ssh BOX command.

The VM can easily be stopped and deleted with the vagrant destroy command. Please see the official Vagrant documentation for a more in depth explanation of available commands.

Test Kitchen

Please see documentation in: [](


Please use standard Github issues/pull requests and if possible, in combination with testing on the Vagrant boxes or Test Kitchen suite.
