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.

hosts.allow Cookbook


Cookbook which configures the host.allow file.


The following platforms are tested using Test Kitchen:

  • Ubuntu 12.04/14.04/16.04
  • CentOS (RHEL) 5/6/7

Basic Usage

The [default recipe](recipes/default.rb) gives you the ability to pass attributes to tune your hosts.allow settings.
There are currently no defaults in this cookbook so your regular distrobution provided hosts.allow file will remain intact.
You can tweak the settings in the Policefile.rb or directly using attributes.


node.default['host_allow']['hosts] = { 'ssh' => 'ALL', 'ntpd' => 'ALL'}


name 'host_allow'
default_source :community
cookbook 'host_allow', git: ''
run_list 'host_allow::default'

override['host_allow']['hosts] = { 'ssh' => 'ALL', 'ntpd' => 'ALL'}
