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.

Opscode Cookbooks


These attributes are under the node['scipy'] namespace.

Attribute Description Type Default
install_type "package" or "source" String package
packages OS packages for installation Array of Strings auto-detected (see attributes/default.rb)
pip_packages PIP packages for installation in requirements format Array of Strings auto-detected (see attributes/default.rb)


  • recipe[scipy] default installation of SciPy
  • recipe[scipy::package] Installs SciPy via OS packages
  • recipe[scipy::source] Installs SciPy via source


SciPy Installation

  • Optionally set node['scipy']['install_type']
  • Add recipe[scipy] to your node's run list.

Overriding pip Package Versions

For running in a more stable development environment or in production, you may want to hard set the package version installed by pip. To do so, add to or update node['scipy']['pip_packages'] and (if necessary) remove from node['scipy']['packages']. The pip_packages Array accepts package names in requirements format.

For example on Ubuntu 13.04, which installs pandas 0.10.X via package, let's say we'd like to pip install 0.12.0 instead:

Defaults to: default['scipy']['packages'] = %w{ ipython ipython-notebook python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib python-nose python-pandas python-sympy } default['scipy']['pip_packages'] = %w{}

Let's override pandas installation: set['scipy']['packages'] = %w{ ipython ipython-notebook python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib python-nose python-sympy } set['scipy']['pip_packages'] = %w{ pandas==0.12.0 }

Testing and Development

Here's how you can quickly get testing or developing against the cookbook thanks to Vagrant and Berkshelf.

git clone git://
cd chef-scipy
vagrant plugin install vagrant-berkshelf
vagrant plugin install vagrant-cachier
vagrant plugin install vagrant-omnibus
vagrant up BOX # BOX being centos5, centos6, debian7, fedora18, fedora19, fedora20, freebsd9, ubuntu1204, ubuntu1210, ubuntu1304, or ubuntu1310

You can then SSH into the running VM using the vagrant ssh command. The VM can easily be stopped and deleted with the vagrant destroy command. Please see the official Vagrant documentation for a more in depth explanation of available commands.


Please use standard Github issues/pull requests and if possible, in combination with testing on the Vagrant boxes.
