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.

gcc-arm-embedded Cookbook

Installs gcc-arm-embedded from a pre-built binary. Puts the binary on the system and links it to the user's PATH.



  • Debian/Ubuntu
  • Mac OS X

Works on common Unix/Linux systems with typical userland utilities like tar, gzip, etc. May require the installation of build tools for compiling from source, but that installation is currently not supported by this cookbook.


  • Chef 12.0+


  • apt -- needed for lib32c packages
  • ark -- downloads and puts the binary, symlinks
