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.

yum-elrepo Cookbook

Build Status Cookbook Version

The yum-elrepo cookbook takes over management of the default repositoryids used by elrepo. It allows attribute manipulation of elrepo.



  • RHEL/CentOS and derivatives
  • Fedora


  • Chef 11+


  • yum version 3.2.0 or higher


The following attributes are set by default

default['yum']['elrepo']['baseurl'] = ''
default['yum']['elrepo']['baseurl'] = ' Yum Repository'
default['yum']['elrepo']['gpgkey'] = ''
default['yum']['elrepo']['enabled'] = true


  • default - Walks through node attributes and feeds a yum_resource parameters. The following is an example a resource generated by the recipe during compilation.
  yum_repository 'elrepo' do
    mirrorlist ''
    description ' Yum Repository'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey ''

Usage Example

To disable the elrepo repository through a Role or Environment definition

  :yum => {
    :elrepo => {
      :enabled => {

To enable the elrepo repository with a wrapper cookbook, place the following in a recipe:

node.default['yum']['elrepo']['enabled'] = true
include_recipe 'yum-elrepo'

More Examples

Point the elrepo repositories at an internally hosted server.

node.default['yum']['elrepo']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['elrepo']['baseurl'] = ''
node.default['yum']['elrepo']['sslverify'] = false

include_recipe 'yum-elrepo'
