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.

idea Cookbook

This cookbook will install the community or ultimate edition of IntelliJ IDEA.

The default recipe will:

  • Download the Community Edition of the IDE from JetBrains' website
  • Extract the archive
  • Configure the JVM options used to start the IDE


  • Depends on opscode/java cookbook


  • node['idea']['setup_dir'] - Target directory for installation. This cookbook does not create setup_dir if it does not exist.
  • node['idea']['user'] - user owner of the installation.
  • node['idea']['group'] - group owner of the installation (default to the same value as user if not specified).
  • node['idea']['edition'] - Target edition of IntelliJ IDEA to install. Defaults to C for Community edition. Other acceptable value: U for Ultimate.
  • node['idea']['version'] - the version of IntelliJ IDEA to install (default: 2016.2.3).
  • node['idea']['url'] - Download URL for IntelliJ IDEA (default:{edition}-#{version}.tar.gz).
  • node['idea']['ide_dir'] - the name of the IDEA folder (default: ideaI{edition}-{version}, e.g. if you install the default version of the Community Edition: ideaIC-14.1.4).
  • node['idea']['64bits']['Xmx'] - specify the value of -Xmx in the 64bits configuration file (default: 2048m).
  • node['idea']['64bits']['Xms'] - specify the value of -Xms in the 64bits configuration file (default: 2048m).



Include recipe[idea::default] in your run_list and override the defaults you want changed.

Note: the recipe will not do anything if node['idea']['setup_dir'] already contains the chosen version of IntelliJ IDEA.
