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 cookbook provides an LWRP for easily creating and managing swap files.


Add a new swap: ruby swap_file '/mnt/swap' do size 1024 # MBs end

Or remove an existing one: ruby swap_file '/mnt/swap' do action :remove end

LWRP Attributes

<table> <tr> <th>Attribute</th> <th>Description</th> <th>Example</th> <th>Default</th> </tr> <tr> <td>path</td> <td>The path to put the swap file on the system</td> <td>/mnt/swap</td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>size</td> <td>The size (in MBs) for the swap file</td> <td>2048</td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>persist</td> <td>Persist the swapon</td> <td>true</td> <td>false</td> </tr> </table>


If you're using berkshelf, add swap to your Berksfile:

cookbook 'swap'

Otherwise, install the cookbook from the community site:

knife cookbook site install swap

Have any other cookbooks depend on this cookbook by adding it to the metadata.rb:

depends 'swap'

Now you can use the LWRP in your cookbook!
