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.

Netdev Cookbook


The netdev cookbook provides a set of lightweight resource providers that are intended to represent network resources in a non-vendor specific way. The lightweight resource providers describe network resources running on network devices. These resource abstractions have been developed as a starting point for automating network elements using Opscode Chef.


The resources provided here are summarized below.

<dd>This resource provides an abstraction for managing physical interfaces on network elements.</dd>

<dd>This resource provides an abstraction for creating and deleting layer 2 interfaces on network devices</dd>

<dd>This resource provides an abstraction for creating and deleting lag interfaces</dd>

<dd>This resource provides an abstraction for creating and deleting vlans</dd>


The intention of this library of lightweight resource providers is to grow over time to encompass as much of the network resources as makes sense. Contributions are gladly accepted either as pull requests or by opening an issue and requesting a specific LWRP.
