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.

This is a PoC cookbook to show a working solution for delayed
attribute evaluation within resource blocks. The relevant
Chef ticket is here:


Below is an example recipe to demonstrate the usage.

include_recipe 'delayed_evaluator'

node.default[:testbook][:test_content] = "I'm the compile time value!"

ruby_block 'reset test content' do
  block do
    node.default[:testbook][:test_content] = "I'm the execution time value!"

file '/opt/test_no_delay' do
  content node[:testbook][:test_content]

file '/opt/test_delay' do
  content delay_eval{ node[:testbook][:test_content] }

Note that the evaluation block must be provided to the delay_eval
method. It simply generates a Chef::DelayedEvaluator instance to
prevent conflicts where attributes are expecting a block.
