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.

This cookbook adds functionality for using ObjectiveFS. ObjectiveFS is:

... a shared distributed POSIX file system that provides persistent data
storage among your cloud instances, laptops, containers and office servers.

This cookbook will install the package and allows creation of ObjectiveFS mount


  • Currently only supports Ubuntu 16.04 #FIXME.
  • A license for ObjectiveFS is necessary
  • The package must be downloaded from ObjectiveFS


The ObjectiveFS requires a license and downloads are behind a
login. Thus you must first download
and determine another method of distributing this package within your

Package installation in this cookbook (via the default recipe) assumes you
have incorporated the package into a local APT repository and will use apt to
install a package named objectivefs (the .deb distributed by ObjectiveFS
uses this name).


  • objectivefs['package']
    • name: The name of the package to install. Defaults to "objectivefs"
    • provider: The Chef package resource provider to use for installation. Defaults to Chef::Provider::Package
    • source: Path to the .deb package when using the package provider dpkg_package



The default recipe simply installs the package. Defaults use apt to install objectivefs



ofs_mount will create a mount in the host's fstab. Each mount will have its own configuration directory specified in the env attribute. Currently the instance name is unused by the resource.


An ofs_mount resource block creates and manages the configuration directory and mountpoint for an ObjectiveFS file system.

ofs_mount 'test' do
  env '/etc/objectivefs.env'
  aws_access_key_id '1234'
  aws_default_region 'us-west'
  aws_secret_access_key 'abcdefg'
  objectivefs_license 'letmein'
  bucket_uri 's3://foo/bar'
  mount_point '/mnt/ofs_mount_test'
  action :mount


This resource has the following actions:

  • :create: creates the configuration directory, populates the configuration files, and creates an entry in the host's file systems table (e.g. fstab).
  • :mount: mounts the indicated instance


  • env: The path to the ObjectiveFS configuration directory
  • aws_access_key_id: An access key for the S3 bucket
  • aws_secret_access_key: The secret access key for the bucket
  • aws_default_region: The region containing the s3 bucket
  • objectivefs_license: The ObjectiveFS license
  • bucket_uri: The S3 URI for the ObjectiveFS bucket
  • mount_point: Where the ObjectiveFS bucket will be mounted


An ObjectiveFS package is typically required for development. Download and
place the objectivefs package in test/assets/packages and the default
recipe will be able to install it in the test-kitchen host.
