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.

This recipe is designed to be used through the god_monitor define. Create a god configuration file in your application's cookbook and then call god_monitor:

god_monitor "myproj" do
  config "myproj.god.erb"

A sample mongrel.god.erb is provided, though it assumes mongrel_runit is used. This can be used as a baseline for customization.
