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 supermarket mailing list.

chef-npm-registry Build Status Dependency Status

The npm_registry cookbook installs and configures an NPM package registry using the official NPM project layout. Includes support for replicating the official isaacs NPM registry (continuously or scheduled).

If you are installing this locally (such as with Vagrant), it is recommended you set the following attributes:

  • node['couch_db']['httpd']['bind_address'] = ''
  • node['couch_db']['httpd']['secure_rewrites'] = false

This cookbook also makes use of the couch_db attributes:

  • node['couch_db']['config']['couchdb']['httpsd']
  • node['couch_db']['config']['httpd']['port']
  • node['couch_db']['config']['couchdb']['database_dir']



  • Ubuntu

Tested on:

  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • Ubuntu 12.10


Requires Opscode's git and couchdb cookbooks and Marius Ducea's nodejs cookbook. Opscode's cron cookbook is only required if using scheduled replication. See Attributes and Usage for more information.


See the attributes/defaults.rb for default values.

  • node['npm_registry']['git']['url'] - The URL to NPM's registry repository. Attribute is provided in case the repository is ever moved.
  • node['npm_registry']['git']['reference'] - The branch or tag name to checkout from the Git repository.
  • node['npm_registry']['isaacs']['registry']['url'] - The URL to the official NPM registry (used for replication).
  • node['npm_registry']['replication']['flavor'] - Allowed values: none, scheduled or continuous
  • node['npm_registry']['replication']['scheduled']['minute'] - The scheduled minute value.
  • node['npm_registry']['replication']['scheduled']['hour'] - The scheduled hour value.

  • node['npm_registry']['replication']['scheduled']['day'] - The scheduled day value.
  • node['npm_registry']['replication']['scheduled']['month'] - The scheduled month value.


To install and configure the default NPM package registry, use:

{ "run_list": ["recipe[npm_registry]"] }

For scheduled replication, use:

{ "run_list": ["recipe[cron]", "recipe[npm_registry]"] }
