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.

Chef version

Chef version >= 12.14.60 has to be used.


This cookbook has been designed to provide LWRP for your own infrastructure recipes.
Load this cookbook by your chef-client either by adding the line depends 'timezone_lwrp' to your infrastructure cookbook's metadata.rb file.

But if you want 'good old' attribute-based configuration you may just add recipe[timezone_lwrp] to your run_list and set ['tz'] attribute to a desired timezone.



This resource sets the timezone by editing /etc/timezone file and running dpkg-reconfigure afterwards.

timezone 'Europe/Moscow'
