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.

Rippled Cookbook


This cookbook compiles and installs a Ripple node (version 0.30.1-hf1). At the time of writing Ripple Labs does not provide a precompiled package for the most recent release, therefore the only installation method available is via sources.

The cookbook generally follows instructions published at here with the following improvements: - allow to bind on privileged ports - customized init.d script based on one from Ripple Labs provided ubuntu package


Please refer to rippled example configuration in sources for the full list of settings souces.

All attributes within node["rippled"]["config"] will be converted to the content of rippled.cfg. A key from node["rippled"]["config"][key] becomes a section. A corresponding value might be a string (converts to a single string in the section), an array (each element goes as a string in the section), a map (converts to a list of key=value strings), nil (to suppress default attributes, the section is not created then). It is clear from examples:

An array

node["rippled"]["config"]["server"] = ["port_rpc_admin_local", "port_peer", "port_ws_admin_local"]

becomes a section (mind server -> [server] transformation done by the recipe)


A single value

node["rippled"]["config"]["node_size"] = "medium"

becomes a section


A map

node["rippled"]["config"]["port_peer"] = {
    "port" => "51235",
        "ip" => "",
        "protocol" => "peer"

becomes a section


A nil

node["rippled"]["config"]["port_ws_admin_local"] = nil

removes port_ws_admin_local section

Generally speaking, sections of rippled.cfg contain lines with either values or key-value pairs. The only mix is [server] and putting a key-value there is syntax sugar and thus can be easily avoided. If you still need a mix, you can use the following construction

default["rippled"]["config"]["server"] = ["port_rpc_admin_local", "#port_ws_public", "ssl_key = /etc/ssl/private/server.key", "ssl_cert = /etc/ssl/certs/server.crt"]

The default attributes merely repeat default rippled configuration from souces. For better version tracking a copy of this example used to derive the attributes is saved in this cookbook at materials/rippled-example.cfg

If the following paths are specified (explicitly or with default values), the recipe will create corresponding folders for under node['rippled']['user'] ownership:

  • ["rippled"]["config"]["node_db"]["path"]
  • ["rippled"]["config"]["database_path"]
  • ["rippled"]["rippled"]["config"]["debug_logfile"]

All other attributes are listed below.

Attribute Description Default
node['rippled']['git_repository'] Git repository of rippled sources
node['rippled']['git_revision'] Git revision to check out 0.30.1-hf1
node['rippled']['run_tests'] Run internal tests, true or false true
node['rippled']['cmd_params'] Additional command line parameters to the daemon (*) --net
node['rippled']['config'] Content of rippled.cfg (described above) identical to rippled-example.cfg
node['rippled']['user'] User to run the daemon rippled
node['rippled']['group'] Group to create for the User rippled
node['rippled']['pid_path'] Path to pid-file /var/run/
node['rippled']['binary_path'] Where to install the executable /usr/bin/rippled
node['rippled']['config_path'] Where to install the config pid-file /etc/rippled/rippled.cfg

(*) Do not add --conf or --fg here, neither add parameters that will cause the daemon to exit (like --help)

Supported Platforms

  • Ubuntu 14.04

Known issues

  • You need at least 16G memory to compile rippled. If memory is insufficient, g++ fails with an internal error. See .kitchen.yml
  • service status rippled fails from non-privileged user because cannot read the config file. The file might have validation keys and thus restricted on purpose. If this issue bothers anybody, permissions shall be made configurable via chef attributes.

rippled versions, cookbook versioning

This cookbook follows semantic versioning.

Here is how to update the cookbook for a newer rippled version. - Copy rippled/doc/rippled-example.cfg to materials/rippled.cfg - If any any default configs are changed, added or removed, reflect it in ["rippled"]["config"] attributes - Bump rippled version in ["rippled"]["git_revision"] attribute and in this README - Bump cookbook version (since we alter the default value for git_revision, it is a breaking change) - Update changelog - Build locally kitchen converge (clean kitchen destroy) - Publish knife cookbook site share rippled Other -VV - Commit and tag in github


  • rippled::default Builds the rippled from source, configures, installs and runs.
