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.

Bootstrap a new Chef cookbook in less than a minute.


Bootstrapping a New Project

  1. Clone the master branch of this repository with
   $ git clone --single-branch new-chef-cookbook
   $ cd new-chef-cookbook

Optionally, reset to the latest release with

   $ git reset --hard chef-cookbook-v3.0.0
  1. Run
   $ ./

and follow the prompts. This will replace the boilerplate, delete itself, and stage changes for commit. This script assumes the project repository will be hosted on GitHub. For an alternative location, you must update the URLs manually.

  1. Fill in the README Description section.

  2. If choosing a license other than the one provided: update LICENSE.txt, the README License section, metadata.rb, attributes/default.rb, and recipes/default.rb with your chosen license.

  3. Regenerate with $ rake readme. Do not edit directly: it will be generated from using data from metadata.rb, and the .md files in /doc.


If you want to pull in future updates from this skeleton, you can fetch and merge in changes from this repository.

If this repository is already set as origin, rename it to upstream with

$ git remote rename origin upstream

and then configure your origin branch as normal.

Otherwise, add this as a new remote with

$ git remote add upstream

You can then fetch and merge changes with

$ git fetch upstream
$ git merge upstream/master


Note that is just a template for this skeleton. The actual changes for this project are documented in the commit history and summarized under Releases.
