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.

You will have to at least set the email, hostname, entities, username and password attributes before running the recipe.

node.set['inwx-dns-updater']['email'] = ""
node.set['inwx-dns-updater']['hostname'] = "your.domain.tld"
node.set['inwx-dns-updater']['entities'] = ["123456789"]
node.set['inwx-dns-updater']['username'] = "foo"
node.set['inwx-dns-updater']['password'] = "barbaz"

include_recipe "inwx-dns-updater::default"

The xmlfile and site attributes are entirely optional and probably not a good thing to use.

The entity IDs can be determined by editing a DNS entry in the web UI and mousing over the „save“ button. It’s in the URL (see image):
