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.

Usage Examples

Including in a Cookbook Recipe

Running it from a recipe:

include_recipe 'mumble_server'

Don't forget to include the mumble_server cookbook as a dependency in the metadata.

# metadata.rb
# [...]

depends 'mumble_server'

Including in the Run List

Another alternative is to include the default recipe in your Run List.

  "name": "",
  "[...]": "[...]",
  "run_list": [

Setting SuperUser Password

include_recipe 'mumble_server'

# Set SuperUser password
mumble_server_supw 'PUzcoHohsDiFECHyX0PP'

Server Configuration Example

Note: See the Murmur guide and the murmur.ini documentation for more information.

This is the default configuration:

# Path to database. If blank, will search for
# murmur.sqlite in default locations or create it if not found.
node.default['mumble_server']['config']['database'] =

# If you wish to use something other than SQLite, you'll need to set the name
# of the database above, and also uncomment the below.
# Sticking with SQLite is strongly recommended, as it's the most well tested
# and by far the fastest solution.
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbDriver'] = ' 'QMYSQL''
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbUsername'] = nil
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbPassword'] = nil
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbHost'] = nil
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbPort'] = nil
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbPrefix'] = 'murmur_'
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbOpts'] = nil

# Murmur defaults to not using D-Bus. If you wish to use dbus, which is one of
# the RPC methods available in Murmur, please specify so here.
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbus'] = 'system'

# Alternate D-Bus service name. Only use if you are running distinct
# murmurd processes connected to the same D-Bus daemon.
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['dbusservice'] =
#   'net.sourceforge.mumble.murmur'

# If you want to use ZeroC Ice to communicate with Murmur, you need
# to specify the endpoint to use. Since there is no authentication
# with ICE, you should only use it if you trust all the users who have
# shell access to your machine.
# Please see the ICE documentation on how to specify endpoints.
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['ice'] = 'tcp -h -p 6502'

# Ice primarily uses local sockets. This means anyone who has a
# user account on your machine can connect to the Ice services.
# You can set a plaintext "secret" on the Ice connection, and
# any script attempting to access must then have this secret
# (as context with name "secret").
# Access is split in read (look only) and write (modify)
# operations. Write access always includes read access,
# unless read is explicitly denied (see note below).
# Note that if this is uncommented and with empty content,
# access will be denied.
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['icesecretread'] = nil
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['icesecretwrite'] = nil

# How many login attempts do we tolerate from one IP
# inside a given timeframe before we ban the connection?
# Note that this is global (shared between all virtual servers), and that
# it counts both successfull and unsuccessfull connection attempts.
# Set either Attempts or Timeframe to 0 to disable.
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['autobanAttempts '] = ' 10'
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['autobanTimeframe '] = ' 120'
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['autobanTime '] = ' 300'

# Specifies the file Murmur should log to. By default, Murmur
# logs to the file 'murmur.log'. If you leave this field blank
# on Unix-like systems, Murmur will force itself into foreground
# mode which logs to the console.
node.default['mumble_server']['config']['logfile'] =

# If set, Murmur will write its process ID to this file
# when running in daemon mode (when the -fg flag is not
# specified on the command line). Only available on
# Unix-like systems.
node.default['mumble_server']['config']['pidfile'] =

# The below will be used as defaults for new configured servers.
# If you're just running one server (the default), it's easier to
# configure it here than through D-Bus or Ice.
# Welcome message sent to clients when they connect.
node.default['mumble_server']['config']['welcometext'] =
  '<br />Welcome to this server running <b>Murmur</b>.<br />'\
  'Enjoy your stay!<br />'

# Port to bind TCP and UDP sockets to.

#   ' Always enable Opus, 100 = enable Opus if it's supported by all clients.'
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['opusthreshold'] = 100

# Maximum depth of channel nesting. Note that some databases like MySQL using
# InnoDB will fail when operating on deeply nested channels.
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['channelnestinglimit'] = 10

# Regular expression used to validate channel names.
# (Note that you don't have to escape backslashes with \ )
# node.default['mumble_server']['config']['channelname'] =

# Murmur retains the per-server log entries in an internal database which

# How many days should such entries be kept?
# Set to 0 to keep forever, or -1 to disable logging to the DB.

# To enable public server registration, the serverpassword must be blank, and
# this must all be filled out.
# The password here is used to create a registry for the server name; subsequent
# updates will need the same password. Don't lose your password.
# The URL is your own website, and only set the registerHostname for static IP
# addresses.

# channel a custom name.

# If this option is enabled, the server will announce its presence via the
# bonjour service discovery protocol. To change the name announced by bonjour
# adjust the registerName variable.
# See for more
# information about bonjour.
