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 supermarket mailing list.

  • Ubuntu 14.04

Attribute Description Default Value
node['exabgp']['bin_path'] Location of the ExaBGP binary, only set on source installations /usr/sec/exabgp/sbin/exabgp
node['exabgp']['config_path'] Location of the ExaBGP configuration file, only set when a resource with instance set to false is configured /etc/exabgp/exabgp.conf
node['exabgp']['source_url'] URL to the git repository for source installtions
node['exabgp']['source_version'] git ref of the version to install master


  • exabgp::default - Includes the exabgp_config and exabgp_service resources



The exabgp resource installs and configures ExaBGP. It does not create an ExaBGP service. You will need to handle this separately via your service resource of choice.


  • :install – Install and configure ExaBGP. (default)
  • :remove – Remove ExaBGP and configuration file.


  • instance – Name of the ExaBGP installation. If different than the name parameter of the resource. If it is set to false, it will not use the name parameter when naming the instance. This is for backward compatibility with the older version of this cookbook where you may be running an install from /etc/exabgp.
  • cookbook – Which cookbook to look for the exabgp.conf.erb template
  • variables – Pass template variables in much like a template resource
  • install_type – Supports both :package and :source installations. Defaults to :package via python pip. If you'd like to support more installation options, send in a pull request. :heart:


# Installs into /etc/exabgp-anycast
exabgp 'anycast'

# Backward compatible with the previous exabgp cookbook
# Installs to /etc/exabgp
exabgp 'anycast' do
  instance false

# Use your own template from templates/default/exabgp.conf.erb
exabgp 'anycast' do
  cookbook 'mycorp-exabgp'

# Setup a service
service 'exabgp'
