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.

Prepares a machine to be an Omnibus builder.



Chef 11.0.0+


Supported platforms by platform family:

  • debian (debian, ubuntu)
  • fedora
  • rhel (centos, redhat, amazon, scientific etc.)
  • solaris2
  • windows


This cookbook depends on the following external cookbooks:


The default recipe is the main entrypoint for the cookbook and does the following:

  • Ensures all required Omnibus-related directories are created and owned by the build user.
  • Ensures a sane build tool-chain is installed and configured (using the build-essential cookbook)
  • Ensures git is installed (using the git cookbook)
  • Includes a platform-specific recipe to apply additional tweaks as appropriate.

All other recipes should be treated as "private" and are not meant to be used individually. They only exist to support the default recipe.


Attribute Description Type Default
build_user User Omnibus build will be performed as. String omnibus
install_dir Installation directory of the Omnibus package. String /opt/omnibus
cache_dir The directory the Omnibus project uses for caching. String /var/cache/omnibus


Include the omnibus::default recipe in your node's run list and override the cookbook's default attributes as desired. At the very least you will want to override node['omnibus']['install_dir'] to match the installation directory of your Omnibus project.
