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.

Marathon Cookbook

Build Status


Application cookbook for installing Mesosphere's Marathon. Marathon is an Apache Mesos framework for long-running services.


Chef 12.0.0+

This cookbook also assumes you will be running a zookeeper cluster for production use of Mesos and Marathon.

This cookbook also depends on the mesos cookbook.

The following cookbooks are dependencies: * apt * yum * java * mesos (used for installing the Mesos libraries)

The following cookbooks are recommended: * zookeeper

Newer versions of marathon will support the --disable-ha option, so the service will not depend on zookeeper.


Tested on

  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • CentOS 6.7

This cookbook includes cross-platform testing support via test-kitchen, see
