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 and configures nscd.



  • Debian/Ubuntu
  • RHEL/CentOS



Installs nscd, manages the nscd service and makes available commands to clear the nscd databases (passwd and group) so they can be notified in other recipes (such as when managing openldap).


If you're using nscd, add this recipe. If you need to notify the clear commands, e.g.,

cookbook_file "/etc/nsswitch.conf" do
  source "nsswitch.conf"
  notifies :run, "execute[nscd-clear-passwd]", :immediately
  notifies :run, "execute[nscd-clear-group]", :immediately
