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.

Usage

Adding the cookbook

Add it to your Librarian-chef Cheffile:

cookbook 'ssmtp',
  :git => 'https://github.com/svanzoest/ssmtp-cookbook.git'

Or clone the cookbook into your local chef repository:

git clone https://github.com/svanzoest/ssmtp-cookbook.git

Configuration

The cookbook provides a couple attributes that help you to configure ssmtp via a role's default_attributes.

Here's an example role:

name 'mail_server'
description "Installs mail related applications."
# List of recipes and roles to apply. Requires Chef 0.8, earlier versions use 'recipes()'.
run_list(
  'recipe[ssmtp]'
)
# Attributes applied if the node doesn't have it set already.
default_attributes(
  'ssmtp' => {
    'root' => 'user@example.com',
    'rewrite_domain' => 'example.com',
    'mailhub_name' => 'smtp.example.com'
  }
)
# Attributes applied no matter what the node has set already.
#override_attributes(
#)

For a full list of attributes please consult ./attributes/default.rb.

Authentication

The cookbook provides an attribute called credential_method which defines whether authentication credentials are provided in a crypted data bag or via plain text. It defaults to the more secure crypto data bag method.

Available options are:

  • data_bag
  • plain
