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.

freebsd Cookbook

Build Status Cookbook Version

Sets up ports and pkgng on FreeBSD systems



  • FreeBSD


  • Chef 12.1+


  • none


Attribute Default Description
node['freebsd']['compiletime_portsnap'] false Execute portsnap resources at compile time

Supported Versions

This cookbook will support stable and release versions of the FreeBSD Platform. More information on this subject can be found at issue23.



This recipe ensures pkg (aka pkgng), FreeBSD's next generation package management tool, is installed and configured.

This recipe is only useful on FreeBSD versions before 10 as pkg ships in the base install of FreeBSD 10+. That being said the recipe is safe to include on the runlists of FreeBSD 10 nodes and will mostly operate in a no-op mode.


This recipe ensures the Ports Collection collection is fully up to date.

This recipe should appear first in the run list of FreeBSD nodes to ensure that the package cache is up to date before managing any package resources with Chef.



Provides an easy way to set port options from within a cookbook.

It can be used in two different ways:

  • template-based: specifying a source will write it to the correct destination with no change;
  • options hash: if a options hash is passed instead, it will be merged on top of default and current options, and the result will be written back.

Note that the options hash take simple options names as keys and a boolean as value; when saving to file, this is converted to the format that FreeBSD ports expect:

Option Key Name Option Value Options File


Action Description Default
create create the port options file according to the given options Yes


Attribute Description
name The name of the port whose options file you want to manipulate;
source if the attribute is set, it will be used to look up a template, which will then be saved as a port options file
options a hash with the option name as the key, and a boolean as value.


# freebsd-php5-options will be written out as /var/db/ports/php5/options
freebsd_port_options "php5" do
  source "freebsd-php5-options.erb"
  action :create

# Default options will be read from /usr/ports/lang/php5;
# current options from /var/db/ports/php5/options (if exists);
# the APACHE options will be set to true, the others will be unchanged
freebsd_port_options "php5" do
  options "APACHE" => true
  action :create
