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.

nessus Cookbook

This cookbook installs Tenable Nessus
and does some initial setup. Currently it can enable the service and
activate your feed subscription.


Tenable does not seem to offer direct download of the Nessus installer
so currently we have to rely on it being somewhere on the filesystem.
This can be accomplished with another cookbook, shared directory, etc.


  • installer_file - Where to find the installer file.
  • enable - Boolean - Whether to enable/start the service
  • activate - Boolean - Whether to activate the subscription
  • activation_code - String - Nessus Feed activation code



Just include nessus in your node's run_list to install and start:

  "run_list": [

To activate as well:

  "run_list": [
  "default_attributes": {


  1. Fork the repository on Github
  2. Create a named feature branch (like add_component_x)
  3. Write your change
  4. Write tests for your change (if applicable)
  5. Run the tests, ensuring they all pass
  6. Submit a Pull Request using Github
