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.

Name Default Value Description

default['mondoo']['api_proxy'] `` Proxy server URL setting for communication with Mondoo Platform

Run Mondoo Cookbook with chef-run

See the examples directory for examples of using this cookbook with chef-run.


Ensure docker and vagrant are installed and run:

MONDOO_TOKEN=ey...Bp KITCHEN_LOCAL_YAML=kitchen.dokken.yml kitchen test

(or add MONDOO_API_PROXY to the list of variables to test the setting/using of that variable)

You can "enter" the resulting environment used for the test by changing the 'test' kitchen command to 'login'.

You can reduce the number of environments tested (to speed up local testing) by commenting out unnecessary entries from kitchen.dokken.yml.


This repo includes a GitHub action "Supermarket Release", which you can manually trigger to perform a release. Before running this workflow make sure to:

  • Update the metadata.rb file with the new version.
  • Update the file to document the new release.
