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.

A cookbook to help automate "attribute hoisting" when using Chef with Policyfiles.

Attribute hoisting is a way to store per-policy-group attributes in a policy to allow similar settings to environment-level attributes in a pre-Policyfile workflow. Just put the desired attributes under a top-level key matching the name of the policy group and add poise-hoist either to your run list or to your cookbook dependencies.

Quick Start

In your Policyfile:

name 'myapp'

run_list 'poise-hoist', 'myapp'

default['staging']['myapp']['debug_mode'] = true
default['prod']['myapp']['debug_mode'] = false


Chef 12.2 or newer is required.

Use With Test Kitchen

When testing policies with the policyfile_zero provisioner plugin, the policy group will always be local.

default['local']['myapp']['debug_mode'] = true


Development sponsored by Bloomberg.

The Poise test server infrastructure is generously sponsored by Rackspace. Thanks Rackspace!
