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.

Chef Workstation Chef


This is a wrapper cookook that uses several codenamephp resources to setup a workstation for developing chef cookbook. This includes installing chef workstation,
setting up the bash environment to init chef, set a local dokken environment variable, etc. and installing VSCode with chef extensions.


Supported Platforms

  • Debian


  • Chef 13.0+


Add the cookbook to your Berksfile or metadata.rb:

cookbook 'codenamephp_workstation_chef'

You can then add the cookbook to your runlist. The default recipe will setup everything EXCEPT the user(s). I recommend creating the users yourself using a databag
or just use the user. This cookbook creates all users in node['users'] from a databag. The attribute defaults to chef.

There is also the codenamephp_workstation_chef::recipe that does the bare minimum to create the users from node['users']. You can add this recipe before the
default recipe in your runlist.


  • default['users']: The usernames that should be created and that receive the bash management and chef configs, defaults to ['chef']
  • default['codenamephp']['workstation_chef']['vscode']['extensions']: An array of extension names that will be installed for the users for vscode, defaults to ['chef-software.chef', 'eamodio.gitlens', 'github.vscode-pull-request-github']



The default recipe sets everything up except the users by include the chef and vscode recipes. Make sure you have created the users beforehand.


The chef recipe installs the chef-workstation and sets up the environment by managing dropfiles for bash.


The vscode recipe installs VSCode and several extensions that are useful for developing cookbooks.


Installs the gnome desktop and sets serveral settings and keyboard shortcuts
