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.

iterm2 (10) Versions 1.3.2

Installs/Configures iterm2

cookbook 'iterm2', '= 1.3.2'
cookbook 'iterm2', '= 1.3.2', :supermarket
knife cookbook site install iterm2
knife cookbook site download iterm2


Installs iTerm2 in /Applications. Optionally enables tmux integration for iTerm 2.



  • Mac OS X


Added as a dependency in 1.2.0:


Attributes are documented in the metadata. See attributes/default.rb for default values.


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.
