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.

Gem Installer

Simple cookbook for managing gem versions on a node.



Define gems (and optionally version restrictions) within the role:

    :gem_installer => {
      :gems => {
        'pg' => nil,
        'activerecord' =>  '~> 3.0.0',
        'ssmtp' => nil

Chef Gems

Managing chef gems works in just same way, but by using the :chef_gems key instead of :gems

    :gem_installer => {
      :chef_gems => {
        'pg' => nil

Backwards Compatibility

Use the [chef_gem]{} cookbook to maintain compatibility on node running Chef pre 0.10.9
