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.

marker cookbook

Build Status

Provides a way to create a visual marker in the Chef log based on a template.

It uses a definition because it runs in the context of the recipe where the
cookbook and recipe name are available.


Requires Chef 10 or higher.


Add a dependency to your cookbook's metadata.rb:

depends 'marker'

At the beginning of your recipe:

marker "recipe_start"

Now, when your recipe is converging it will log:

*  Running recipe hello_world::default

RightScale Audit Entry

This cookbook comes with a rightscale_audit_entry.erb template that can be
used to delineate recipes in the Audit Entires UI on the RightScale Dashboard:

marker "recipe_start_rightscale" do
  template "rightscale_audit_entry.erb"

This will log in a format that will create an expandable entry for your recipe
in the RightScale Audit Entry for your Chef run:

*RS>  Running recipe hello_world::default   ****

Custom Templates

You can also use the marker with your own custom templates and even add your own variables:

marker "recipe_start_custom" do
  template "custom.erb"
  cookbook "hello_world"
  variables :host_name => node[:hostname]

The template that you include in your cookbook could look like:

*  Running recipe <%= @recipe_name %> on <%= @host_name %>

This will log in your custom format:

*  Running recipe hello_world::default on localhost
