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.

Stove Chef Tool

Stove is a handy utility for packaging and releasing Chef cookbooks.

Install & Usage Instructions

Gem Version Build Status Dependency Status Code Climate Gittip


  1. Add Stove to your project's Gemfile:

    gem 'stove'
  2. Run the bundle command to install:

    $ bundle install --binstubs


Stove requires your username and private key to upload a cookbook. You can pass these to each command call, or you can set them Stove:

$ stove login --username sethvargo --key ~/.chef/sethvargo.pem

These values will be saved in Stove's configuration file and persisted across your workstation.

The default publishing endpoint is the Chef Supermarket, but this is configurable. If you want to publish to an internal community site, you can specify the --endpoint value:

$ stove --endpoint


There are two ways to use Stove. You can either use the stove command directly or use the embedded rake task.


Execute the stove command from inside the root of a cookbook:

$ bin/stove

This will package (as a tarball) the cookbook in the current working directory, tag a new version, push to git, and publish to a cookbook share.

Rake task

If you are familiar with the Bundler approach to publishing Ruby gems, this approach will feel very familiar. Simply add the following to your Rakefile:

require 'stove/rake_task'

And then use rake to publish the cookbook:

$ bin/rake publish
