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.

Sync configuration

Select a mode for the sync for further attributes.

rsync mode

For remote targets, normal rsync behavior of rsync all changes over the wire.

Attributes: * host - remote host, used in conjunction with targetdir - no default * rsyncOpts - array of rsync option strings, lsyncd defaults this to "-lts" * target - full specification for destination ([host::]/target/dir) - no default * targetdir - target directory, possibly used in conjunction with host - no default
