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.

This cookbook will install Mosh.



Strictly speaking no additional cookbooks are required, so none are specific dependencies. However, depending on your platform and package manager, you may need the following cookbooks:

  • apt - for apt_repository, used in the "package" recipe for Ubuntu < 12.04 to enable backports, where mosh is available.
  • homebrew - if you're installing on Mac OS X and you wish to use homebrew, you'll need this cookbook to set brew as the default package manager, otherwise the package installation may fail (macports is the default provider on Mac OS X.
  • runit - can be used to set up the mosh server daemon.
  • bluepill - can be used to set up the mosh server daemon.

It is generally assumed that on the appropriate platforms you have otherwise included these cookbooks' recipes in the node's run list or in a base role.


This cookbook should work on most platforms where Mosh is available as a package, and on others where it can be compiled from source.


See attributes/default.rb for default values.

  • node['mosh']['install_type'] - can be "package" or "source" and will determine which recipe is included in the default recipe.
  • node['mosh']['version'] - version of Mosh to install from source
  • node['mosh']['source_url'] - URL to the source tarball
  • node['mosh']['source_checksum'] - SHA256 checksum of the source tarball
  • node['mosh']['init_style'] - type of init system to use for setting up the mosh daemon(s).



Includes package or source recipe based on the value of the node['mosh']['install_type'] attribute.


Installs the mosh package using the package installation instructions from the Mosh home page. Should work on the following platforms:

  • Ubuntu
  • Debian
  • Fedora
  • ArchLinux
  • Gentoo
  • Mac OS X


Installs Mosh from the source tarball per the instructions on the home page.


Put recipe[mosh] in your node's run list and it should install Mosh for you. If it fails, you may need to adjust the install_type attribute as described above.
