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.

Build Status

The postgis cookbook installs and configures the Postgis Postgresql extension and creates a GIS enabled database template.



  • Ubuntu


  • apt
  • postgresql


  • node['postgis']['template_name'] - The name of the gis database template. Set to nil to disable the creation of the template.. Defaults to template_postgis.


  • postgis::default - Install the Postgis binaries and create the template. Note: this includes the postgresql::server after installing the postgis binaries.


It should be noted that it is best setup the locale so that
the encoding is the desired database encoding prior to including
the recipe. Typically this is set via a snippet such as;

node.override['locale']['lang'] = 'en_AU.UTF-8'
include_recipe 'locale::default'

include_recipe 'postgis::default'
