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.

Installs twitter gem and Chef library to provide easy tweeting in recipes via Twitter:tweet()


Rubygems; works on linux and windows!


Tune to set temp and location of your encrypted data bag secret, the name of your encrypted data bag for secret twitter application settings, the name of your twitter application, and any default tags to tweet at.


Check out full functioned example.rb for details by adding "twitter" and "twitter::example" to the run list, then let chef run twice.

The first time through generates a safe "ERROR: ruby_blocktweet_example had an error: uninitialized constant Chef::Recipe::Tweeter::Twitter error" message; the next times work as expected. Do not know how to tell chef to reload libraries mid-run... That might solve the first error. See for more information.

1 register your [:twitter][:user] app account

2 create and distribute a pre-shared "encrypted_data_bag_secret" file to all nodes (if you do not already have one)

2 create the encrypted [:twitter][:databag] data bag to hold your [:twitter][:user] secret app settings

knife data bag create --secret-file /path/encrypted_data_bag_secret tweeter twitter_name

3 edit json secret [:twitter][:user] app settings inside your [:twitter][:databag] encrypted data bag

knife data bag edit --secret-file /path/encrypted_data_bag_secret tweeter twitter_name

{ "id": "twitter_name", "consumer_key": "string", "consumer_secret": "string", "oauth_token": "string", "oauth_token_secret": "string" }


node[:twitter][:admin].each { |a| Tweeter.tweet(a, "if you use @nikeplus you should have an account on smashrun", settings["consumer_key"], settings["consumer_secret"], settings["oauth_token"], settings["oauth_token_secret"]) }
