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.

  • git - To clone the code both for client and server source installs.
  • cmake - Build dependency for task and taskserver.
  • build-essential - Build dependency for task and taskserver.
  • perl - Build dependency for taskserver.

Installs the taskwarrior client that can work standalone, just add it to your run_list. You can choose to install from the repositories, or to build from source. Just set the ["taskwarrior"]["install_method"] to "source", like so.

  "run_list": [
  "override_attrubutes": {
    "taskwarrior": {
      "install_method": "source"


Builds and installs the taskwarrior service daemon (taskd) and sets up supervising with runit. Check the taskwarrior wiki pages for operation, setup amd ciphers

Add the following to you users data bag. json { "id": "bob", "taskwarrior": { "organization": "Public", "groups": ["groupA", "groupB"] } }

This will generate client keys and the taskd user and its Uuid for bob. The key distrubution at the moment is done by hand so you need to get them from the key directory.


The testing is done mostly with test-kitchen before everything, set it up. Also foodcritic is used for linting.
