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.

Installs netatalk from deb-src package with SSL support.


  • Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04
  • Debian 6.0


The attributes set in the cookbook are used for managing settings for the shares that should be in AppleVolumes.default, and the base directory shared over AFP.


The default netatalk package on Debian/Ubuntu does not have SSL support, so newer Mac OS X clients will be unable to authenticate.

Include the "netatalk" recipe on the desired node's run list. This recipe will include the "netatalk::build_deb" recipe, which downloads the source package and builds with SSL support. The build_deb recipe will install the build dependencies to use debuild to build the netatalk package. This does take quite some time to build.

Once the package is built, it will be installed with dpkg. The base share directory will be created as well, and the AppleVolumes.default share config file will be written.

The shares do need to be configured, and you can set up the attributes in a role, e.g. "netatalk_server" with default or override attributes:

"netatalk" => {
  "share_base" => "/srv/export",
  "share_base_owner" => "jtimberman",
  "share_base_group" => "jtimberman",
  "shares" => [
    '~/ "Home Directory"',
    '/srv/export/timemachine "TimeMachine" allow:jtimberman cnidscheme:cdb'
