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.

The iterm2 cookbook has been deprecated

Author provided reason for deprecation:

The iterm2 cookbook has been deprecated and is no longer being maintained by its authors. Use of the iterm2 cookbook is no longer recommended.


iterm2 (10) Versions 1.3.3

Installs/Configures iterm2

cookbook 'iterm2', '= 1.3.3', :supermarket
cookbook 'iterm2', '= 1.3.3'
knife supermarket install iterm2
knife supermarket download iterm2
Quality 0%


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.
