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.

ikiwiki chef cookbook

ikiwiki with bootstrap 3 theme

This cookbook deploys ikiwiki (the best wiki ever!) as well as the bootstrap 3 theme based on Twitter's bootstrap CSS framework. Ikiwiki is a wiki backed by a git repository that updates on commits and uses markdown! Ikiwiki also comes with a clean web interface based on Twitter's Bootstrap 3 for graphical administration and editing. This cookbook deploys ikiwiki in a way that is very similar to the Github wiki but with more features.


  • Centos 6+
  • yum-epel


['ikiwiki']['wikiName'] = 'ikiWiki'
['ikiwiki']['wikiNameShort'] = 'ikiWiki'
['ikiwiki']['adminEmail'] = ''
['ikiwiki']['siteUrl'] = ''
['ikiwiki']['wikiAdmin'] = 'ikiwiki'
['ikiwiki']['wikiPass'] = 'ikiwiki'
['ikiwiki']['passworded'] = false


  • Make sure to setup all attributes above before running your cookbook or else it will initialize with the wrong values that wont change!
  • Add to your run_list
  • After execution put your company logo at /var/www/html/logo.png on the wiki server

A user named ikiwiki will be created, apache will be installed and a wiki will be hosted at /var/www/ikiwiki with a git repo at /home/ikiwiki/yourwikiname.git. If you want to clone that directory, you will need to setup an authorized_keys file at /home/ikiwiki/.ssh/authorized_keys with your public keys in it. You will then do your git clone as git clone ikiwiki@ikiwikiServer:wikiNameShort.git.

Ikiwiki has lots of plugins that you can install. Simply edit your /home/ikiwiki/setup.settings file to enable them and then run ikiwiki --setup /home/ikiwiki/ikiwiki.settings to run a rebuild on the wiki.

These plugins are enabled by this cookbook but can be disabled easily via the web UI settings page: - color - attachment - addtag - hilight - img - newpage - notifyemail - linkmap - relativedate - remove - heading anchors

If the passworded attribute is set to true, the wiki will require authentication from a user on the system that PAM can auth against. It will not allow system users like root.


Thanks to the author of ikiwiki bootstrap 3 and of course ikiwiki!


Contributions are welcomed. Lets get ikiwiki out there as a more popular wiki!
