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 supermarket mailing list.

Unicorn Tears Base Chef Cookbook

Cookbook Version Build Status

A Chef cookbook for a Unicorn Tears baseline node. This could be a server, virtual machine, or even a workstation--it's the most basic common set of behavior we want when we manage a node.

This is a wrapper (or application) cookbook and is therefore good and opinionated about application and configuration defaults. Feel free to try it, fork and modify it, or just read and learn.


Simply include recipe[ut_base] in your run-list.
