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.

now cookbook

Build Status
Cookbook Version

This cookbook is a pure library cookbook that monkey patches the core
Chef DSL to provide a method called include_recipe_now. This method
will converge a recipe immediately, as it is encountered during
compilation. This is meant to avoid the "compile phase" arms race
created by over-use and abuse of .run_action. It is not meant to be a
permanent solution for achieving this behavior and should be used only
sparingly, with full understanding of what is happening.

Technique borrowed from Poise.
