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.

RightScale Cookbook

This cookbooks provides configuration management for nodes run on Rightscale.



  • Chef: 0.10.10+


Most of the recipes need to be run on a RightScale-managed cloud instance aka RightScale Server. You may find some recipes useful for other environments.


Depends on the following coookbooks

  • collectd (for RightScale Monitoring)
  • rest_connection (yet to be used)

See the metadata.rb file for the latest dependencies.


The following platforms and versions are tested.

  • Debian 7, 6
  • Ubuntu 12.04, 10.04

The following platform families are supported in the code, and are assumed to work based on the successful testing on Ubuntu and CentOS.

  • CentOS 6, 5
  • EL/RHEL 6, 5
  • Fedora





Includes the following recipes as a base (recommended) state for RightScale-managed nodes:

  • enforce_path_sanity
  • add_sandbox_to_path (disabled by default)
  • connect
  • server_tags
  • monitoring
  • tools
