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.

Flannel Cookbook

This is a library cookbook that provides resources for setting up flannel instances.


  • Chef 12.5.0 or higher.
  • Network accessible web server hosting the flannel binaries.

Platform Support

Tested on the following platforms with test-kitchen:

  • debian-8.2


  • Add depends 'flannel', '~> 0.3' to your cookbook's metadata.rb.
  • Use the resources shipped in this cookbook.

Custom Resources

  • flannel_service


Downloads pre-compiled Go binaries of flanneld onto disk.

  • The :create action downloads the pre-compiled go binary of flanneld onto disk.
  • The :start action runs flanneld as a systemd service

It has the following properties corresponding to flannel's commandline options

  • public_ip
  • etcd_endpoints
  • etcd_prefix
  • etcd_keyfile
  • etcd_cafile
  • iface
  • subnet_file
  • ip_masq
  • listen
  • remote
  • remote_keyfile
  • remote_certfile
  • networks
  • v or log_level

Another property called config corresponds to flannel's etcd-stored configuration


The [libraries/subnet_parser.rb](libraries/subnet_parser.rb) file extends the flannel_service resource to read and parse the subnet file. An example approach on integrating with the docker cookbook is found in [test/cookbooks/flannel_test/recipes/docker.rb](test/cookbooks/flannel_test/recipes/docker.rb).
