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 small cookbook that helps you to update system's and chef-client's rubygems version as they a rarely updated via the system updates.

It was created to mitigate problems like that one:

How to use

This cookbook just runs gem update --system for both system's and chef-client's embedded RubyGems setup.

Just add it to your run_list: recipe[rubgems-update]

If you do not want either system or chef-client gem to be updated you can set attributes:

node['rubygems-update']['chef-client']['skip'] = true

# or

node['rubgems-update']['system']['skip'] = true

Or you can add only the desired recipe: recipe[rubgems-update::system] / recipe[rubgems-update::chef-client]

Supported platforms

Tested on:
