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.

CockroachDB Platform


CockroachDB is an open source, scalable,
survivable, strongly consistent database.

This cookbook is designed to install and configure a CockroachDB cluster.


Cookbooks and gems

Declared in [metadata.rb](metadata.rb) and in [Gemfile](Gemfile).


A systemd managed distribution:
- RHEL Family 7, tested on Centos


Easy Setup

Set node['cockroachdb-platform']['hosts'] to an array containing the
hostnames of the nodes of the CockroachDB cluster.

The recommended way to use this cookbook is through the creation of a role per
CockroachDB cluster. This enables the search by role feature, allowing a
simple service discovery.

In fact, there are two ways to configure the search:

  1. With a static configuration through a list of hostnames (attributes hosts that is node['cockroachdb-platform']['hosts']) for nodes belonging to CockroachDB cluster.
  2. With a real search, performed on a role (attributes role and size like in node['cockroachdb-platform']['role']). The role should be in the run-list of all nodes of the cluster. The size is a safety and should be the number of nodes of this role.

If hosts is configured, role and size are ignored

See [roles](test/integration/roles) for some examples and
[Cluster Search][cluster-search] documentation for more information.


This cookbook is fully tested through the installation of a working 3-nodes
cluster in docker hosts. This uses kitchen, docker and some monkey-patching.

For more information, see [.kitchen.yml](.kitchen.yml) and [test](test)


Configuration is done by overriding default attributes. All configuration keys
have a default defined in [attributes/default.rb](attributes/default.rb).
Please read it to have a comprehensive view of what and how you can configure
this cookbook behavior.



Include search, user, install, config and systemd recipes.

Search the node (initiator) that will initialize first the CockroachDB cluster.
Other nodes will join the CockroachDB cluster after the initiator.


Create user/group used by CockroachDB.


Install CockroachDB using ark.


Generate options for the CockroachDB node.

Global options for each CockroachDB node in the cluster are defined through
the following attribute: node['cockroachdb-platform']['options'].

By default, the CockroachDB cluster will be created and started in secure mode.
SSL certificates used for the secure mode have to be stored in an encrypted
data bag (data bag 'secrets' with items 'ca' and 'node' by default). For an
example, look at the test configuration, you can see also the format needed to
have the client certificates well named and placed in the test-cockroachdb
cookbook. (Note that in the current test configuration, data bag are in ruby
format thanks to a monkey patch. With a production Chef, we have to define them
in JSON.)

To enable the insecure mode, set an insecure attribute to empty string ('')
node['cockroachdb-platform']['options']['insecure']. (like the background one
in [attributes/default.rb](attributes/default.rb))


Create systemd service file for CockroachDB.

  • feat: use 1.0.6 as default version
  • fix(config): wrong guard in node certificates generation
  • fix: move certs dir outside symlink dir
  • feat: change default directories:
    • store: /var/opt/cockroachdb/data (fix for more complicated store)
    • certs: /var/opt/cockroachdb/certs (independant from store)
  • feat: use journald for logging Set background to false, log-dir to '' and logtostderr to INFO to have journald receiving all the logs. Service is simple instead of fork.
  • feat: join all nodes, not just initiator
  • feat: create cluster if necessary then join mode
  • feat: generate client.root certificate at install


  • use .gitlab-ci.yml template [20170731]
  • replace expired ca cert, rm useless one (node)


  • docs: use karma for git format in contributing
  • style: minor stylish corrections in attributes
  • style(rubocop): fix heredoc delimiters
