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.

Poise-Archive Cookbook

Build Status Gem Version Cookbook Version Coverage Gemnasium License

A Chef cookbook to unpack file archives like TAR and ZIP files.

NOTE: ZIP files are not supported yet, stay tuned.

Quick Start

To download an unpack and archive:

poise_archive 'myapp.tgz' do
  action :nothing
  destination '/opt/myapp'

remote_file "#{Chef::Config[:file_cache_path]}/myapp.tgz" do
  source ''
  notifies :unpack, 'poise_archive[myapp.tgz]', :immediately



The poise_archive resource unpacks file archives.

poise_archive '/tmp/myapp-1.2.0.tar' do
  destination '/srv/myapp-1.2.0'


  • :unpack – Unpack the archive. (default)


  • path – Path to the archive. If relative, it is taken as a file inside Chef::Config[:file_cache_path]. (name attribute)
  • destination – Path to unpack the archive to. If not specified, the path of the archive without the file extension is used. (default: auto)
  • group – Group to run the unpack as.
  • keep_existing – Keep existing files in the destination directory when unpacking. (default: false)
  • strip_components – Number of intermediary directories to skip when unpacking. Works like GNU tar's --strip-components. (default: 1)
  • user – User to run the unpack as.


Development sponsored by Bloomberg.

The Poise test server infrastructure is sponsored by Rackspace.
