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.

subversion Cookbook

Build Status Cookbook Version

Installs subversion for clients or sets up a server under Apache HTTPD.



  • Debian/Ubuntu
  • RHEL/CentOS/Scientific/Amazon/Oracle
  • Fedora
  • Windows


  • Chef 11+


  • apache2
  • windows


See attributes/default.rb for default values. The attributes are used in the server recipe.

  • node['subversion']['repo_dir'] - filesystem location of the repository to serve.
  • node['subversion']['repo_name'] - name of the repository to serve up.
  • node['subversion']['server_name'] - server name used in the svn vhost.
  • node['subversion']['user'] - user to log into the svn vhost.
  • node['subversion']['password'] - htpasswd for the subversion user in the server recipe. This should be overridden as the default is not secure.
  • node['subversion']['list_parent_path'] - a choice of "on" or "off". When set to "on" the list of repositories in the node['subversion']['repo_dir'] will be indexed at http://<server_name>/svn. Default is "off"



Includes recipe[subversion::client].


Installs subversion packages.


Sets up an SVN repository server with recipe[apache2::mod_dav_svn]. This will use the web_app definition from the apache cookbook to drop off the template, and uses the attributes for configuration.


On nodes where subversion should be installed such as application servers that will check out a repository, use recipe[subversion]. If you would like a subversion server, use recipe[subversion::server]. You should override node['subversion']['password'] in the role that applies the server recipe.
