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.

This recipe relies on two setup components that need to be noted as they are not used in many (or any) community cookbooks.

Role Based Cluster Setup: This cookbook relies on a cluster identification role to allow more than one storm cluster to run in a single Chef environment, while not breaking Chef search. Create a role with a name of your choosing. The role may be left empty or you may use it to apply the your application's topology and all necessary JARs within your topology. You will need to specify the name of this role using the node attribute ['storm']['cluster_role'], which is empty by default. You will need to apply this cluster role to both supervisor and the nimbus/UI node in your cluster

Deploy Flag: This cookbook uses a deploy flag to prevent the application from deploying unless desired and allows for an undeploy recipe to run prior to the deploy. The deploy recipe will also cleanup the state of storm and is sufficient to wipe clean any topology deploy, although it does not stop the actual topology (that's in the works). Once you've applied the supervisor or nimbus recipes to a node you need to have "deploy_build=true" set in your shell. "sudo deploy_build=true chef-client" can be used to set the environment variable and run Chef in a single command.
