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.

macOS Cookbook

Build Status

Chef resources and recipes for managing and provisioning macOS.

Officially Supported Chef Versions

  • Chef 16

Supported OS Versions

  • macOS High Sierra 10.13
  • macOS Mojave 10.14
  • macOS Catalina 10.15
  • macOS Big Sur 11.0


Admin User and Password

node['macos']['admin_user'] = 'vagrant'
node['macos']['admin_password'] = 'vagrant'

Each of these attributes defaults to vagrant since our resources are developed with the Vagrant paradigm. In other words, the user and password declared here should be an admin user with passwordless super-user rights.


All macos-cookbook recipes are deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

Keep Awake

Prevent macOS from falling asleep, disable the screensaver, reboot upon power failure, enable wake on LAN, enable remote login (SSH) and adjust several other settings to always keep macOS on and available.

Usage: include_recipe 'macos::keep_awake'

Attributes used Default value
node['macos']['remote_login_enabled'] true
node['macos']['network_time_server'] ''
node['macos']['time_zone'] 'America/Los_Angeles'
