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 (very) simple LWRP to provide access to rake as a resource.




attribute :arguments, :kind_of => String, :required => true

The list of arguments to pass to rake. ruby attribute :working_directory, :kind_of => String, :required => true The working directory rake will be executed in.


Make sure rake is installed locally:

include_recipe 'rake' 

Set Path

Currently it expects to find rake on the PATH env variable. Use this in a recipe to ensure it can (this is an example for ubuntu 10.04).

ENV["PATH"] += ":/var/lib/gems/1.8/bin"

Finally, this is how we make rake run.

rake :run do
  working_directory "/tmp"
  arguments "--help"
  action :run


Lots, including

  • fixing the need for action :run.
  • Adding path statements per platform automagically.
  • Adding versioning via an attribute or data_bag.
  • Adding support to specific rake + ruby version (for multi versioned systems).
  • Proper platform support, this should be easy (but a bit time consuming as I don't use every platform ever.)
