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.

tmux Cookbook

Build Status

Installs tmux, a terminal multiplexer.


Platform with a package named 'tmux'. Does a source install on RHEL family.


  • node['tmux']['install_method'] - source or package, uses the appropriate recipe.
  • node['tmux']['version'] - version of tmux to download and install from source.
  • node['tmux']['checksum'] - sha256 checksum of the tmux tarball
  • node['tmux']['configure_options'] - array of command line options passed as arguments to the configure script when installing from source.


Use the recipe for the installation method you want to use, or set the attribute on the node to install from that recipe and use the default recipe. The default recipe also manages /etc/tmux.conf.

On RHEL family, node['tmux']['install_method'] is set to source by default. To install from package, the yum::epel recipe is required to get the tmux package, and the attribte would need to be set explicitly.

When installing from source, an install prefix can be set with the configure_options attribute. For example:

default['tmux']['configure_options'] << "--prefix=/opt/tmux"

There are two "private" recipes, _package, and _source that are not meant to be included directly in a run_list. They are used by the default recipe and toggled with the node attribute install_method.
