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.

Should work on all Debian based Linux distributions. Support for some other platforms (that ruby_build and fpm support) is planned. Please open an issue or pull request if interested.


This cookbook is intended to be used with the included Vagrant setup (although you can use the cookbook directly by adding it to run_list or by including it in your own cookbooks).

To use Vagrant you need to clone the repository from Github:

    $ git clone

  3. Add your favorite Vagrant box, for example:

    $ vagrant box add "ubuntu-12.04" ""

Building with Vagrant

Spin up the box to build and package a specified Ruby version:

$ VERSION="1.9.3-p429" BOX="ubuntu-12.04" vagrant up

The package will be created to pkg directory.
