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 supermarket mailing list.

spark-jobserver cookbook

Installs the Spark Jobserver.

Dev quickstart:

# minimal required configuration; these values have no defaults and must be provided
chef.json = {
  spark: {
    jobserver: {
      # path to your spark install
      spark_home: '/usr/local/spark',
      spark_conf_dir: '/usr/local/spark/conf',
      # you need to provide the jobserver jar; this gets downloaded, but can be a `file://` uri
      jar_url: ''

include_recipe 'spark-jobserver::default'

To use the provided Vagrantfile to spin up a demo instance:

  1. Copy the Spark distribution binary into the repo root. By default this is assumed to be spark-1.1.0-bin-hadoop2.4.tgz. See below if you wish to use a different Spark distro.
  2. Copy the jobserver jar into the repo root. By default this is assumed to be spark-job-server.jar. Building the jobserver itself is easy: pushd .../spark-jobserver; sbt clean assembly.
  3. Spin up the Vagrant instance: vagrant up
    • If you want to use a different Spark distro, set the SPARK_DIST environment variable (without the extension): SPARK_DIST=spark-1.1.0-bin-cdh4 vagrant up
  4. Now you can browse the Jobserver UI at and go through the jobserver examples.

Note that this repo assumes RVM; YMMV with other installations such as ChefDK. The Vagrant demo requires following plugins:

Follow the appropriate guides for Spark standalone or Mesos deployment. The relevant attributes are:

  • node.spark.jobserver.master_type
  • node.spark.jobserver.master_url


Include spark-jobserver::default in your node's run_list:

  "run_list": [


  1. Fork the repository on Github
  2. Create a named feature branch (i.e. add-new-recipe)
  3. Write your change
  4. Write tests for your change (if applicable)
    • At least a Chefspec proving the fix; Test Kitchen coming later
  5. Run the tests, ensuring they all pass
  6. Submit a Pull Request
