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.

Do a simple, attribute-based install of Samhain.



The attributes in attributes/default.rb are for the basic configuration of Samhain. They write to a file at /etc/samhain/samhainrc The config is written at run time and can be extended from any book by adding attributes. Since the samhainrc is not a perfect hash, the syntax for adding attributes is a bit different.

To overwrite regular attributes: ruby ['samhain']['config']['Misc']['bacon'] = 'Applewood Smoked' To add files or directories for monitoring: ruby ['samhain']['config']['LogFiles']['file']['path/to/my/file'] = true


The intent of the attributes file is to allow service owners to add files to the Samhain watchlist. For more information on Samhain, see their docs at Samhain Labs
