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.

Installs iTerm2 in /Applications.



  • Mac OS X


Added as a dependency in 1.2.0:


See attributes/default.rb for default values.

  • node['iterm2']['version'] - sets the version to download
  • node['iterm2']['checksum'] - sets the sha256sum of the zip file
  • node['iterm2']['tmux_enabled'] - if true, the iterm2::tmux recipe will be included
  • node['iterm2']['tmux_compile'] - if true, the special tmux version from the iterm2 site will be compiled
  • node['iterm2']['tmux_version'] - the version string of the tmux tarball to download from the iterm2 site.
  • node['iterm2']['tmux_checksum'] - checksum of the source tarball of tmux
  • node['iterm2']['tmux_compiled_checksum'] - checksum of the precompiled binary tarball of tmux


By default, this cookbook will install the iTerm2 application to /Applications, and if you have customized settings, copy ~/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.iterm2.plist to files/default to have your preferences managed by Chef on all your machines :).

The latest versions of iTerm 2 have integrated support for the terminal multiplexer, tmux. As of version 1.2.0, this cookobook supports installing the custom tmux required to use this integration. By default, this is not enabled via the attribute node['iterm2']['tmux_enabled'] (false). To enable the integrated tmux support in iTerm2, set that attribute to true through a role. By default, the recipe will download the precompiled binaries. If the attribute node['iterm2']['tmux_compile'] is set true, then the binaries will be compiled. There appears to be some issues with the automake/autoreconf done by the scripts, so it may not work. The precompiled binaries require Mac OS X Lion.
