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.

Release Build Status Code Coverage

Provides ability to manage netrc files for users with Chef.


<table> <tr> <th>Key</th> <th>Type</th> <th>Description</th> <th>Default</th> </tr> <tr> <td><tt>['netrc']['bag_name']</tt></td> <td>String</td> <td>Bag name to find Chef Vault items.</td> <td><tt>netrc</tt></td> </tr> <tr> <td><tt>['netrc']['users']</tt></td> <td>Array</td> <td>Users to install netrc from Chef Vault.</td> <td><tt>[]</tt></td> </tr> </table>



The default recipe will install the netrc gem as well as include the Chef Vault and Chef Sugar cookbooks. If the node['netrc']['users'] attribute has been set it will use the LWRP to create a netrc file for the specified user.

Data Bag

    "id": "jbellone",
    "test": {
        "machines": [
                "host": "",
                "login": "johnbellone",
                "password": "bacon"
    "beta-us-east-1": {
        "machines": []
    "prod-us-east-1": {
        "machines": []


The resource provider can be used on its own if you are storing your secret credentials in a separate data bag. Here's an example of a simple data bag which stores the username and access token for a GitHub user.

item = chef_vault_item('secrets', 'github')
netrc 'jbellone' do
  host ''
  login item['username']
  password item['access_token']

The bag item for this example would look like: json { "id": "github", "username": "johnbellone", "access_token": "bacon" }
