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.

Use this cookbook to distribute your tests to the target systems and run them there.

The cookbook has yet only been tested on / implemented for Debian/Ubuntu. Furthermore, currenty it's currently not possible to include libs with pybot/jybot, but it's a small thing and will be done in the next version. Of course, contribution is very welcome.


To use this cookbook, you need:

robot (with all its dependencies)


runner - "j" or "p" as in "jybot" / "pybot"
urlbase - the HTTP base path where to get test archives from
archive - the name of the tar.gz file which contains all test relevant files
test - test spec file to run, relative to the .. of the tar base folder


What you can do with it? You need to know about acceptance test automation and how they are implemented/supported by the Robot Framework. When you know this, you will also know that acceptance tests can be very slow. If you have a chance to run parts of your whole suites on different machines in parallel, this cookbook will help you do so.
