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.

hubot cookbook

Deploys and manages an instance of GitHub's Hubot.


Include recipe[hubot] in your run_list and override the defaults you want
changed. See [below](#-attributes) for more details. Hubot instances are
configured using environment variables passed to the Hubot process. These
environment variables can be set using the node['hubot']['config'] attribute.



Tested on Chef 11 but newer and older version should work just fine. File an
issue if this isn't the case.


The following platforms have been tested with this cookbook, meaning that the
recipes and LWRPs run on these platforms without error:

  • Ubuntu 10.04, 11.04, 12.04, 12.10
  • CentOS 5, 6


This cookbook depends on the following external cookbooks:



  • Ensures that Node.js is installed and available using the nodejs cookbook.
  • Ensures git is installed and available using the git cookbook.
  • Ensures runit is installed and available using the runit cookbook.
  • Creates a user and group to install and run the Hubot instance under.
  • Installs the specified Hubot version from git.
  • Renders instance-specific package.json, hubot-scripts.json, and hubot.conf files.
  • Creates and enables a hubot runit service to run the Hubot instance under. The runit service reads the hubot.conf file and passes the contents onto the underlying hubot process as configuraiton.
