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.

Installs netatalk with SSL support, for compatibility with newer
versions of Mac OS X.


Tested on the following platforms using test-kitchen (converges clean,
OS X 10.8 client can connect).

  • Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04
  • Debian 6.0

Previously working, but untested:

  • ArchLinux


Attributes are documented in the cookbook's metadata.


The default netatalk package on Debian/Ubuntu does not have SSL
support, so newer Mac OS X clients will be unable to authenticate.
Netatalk 2.2 is required, or the package needs to be built from source
with SSL.

Generally, include the default recipe on the node's run list. On older
versions of Ubuntu/Debian, the backport PPA with Netatalk 2.2 will be
enabled. If this is not working in your Ubuntu/Debian nodes, set the
node['netatalk']['package_recipe'] attribute to build_deb and the
package will be built from the deb-src. The build_deb recipe will
install the build dependencies to use debuild to build the netatalk
package. This does take quite some time to build.

The shares do need to be configured, and you can set up the attributes
in a role, e.g. "netatalk_server" with default or override attributes:

"netatalk" => {
  "share_base" => "/srv/export",
  "share_base_owner" => "jtimberman",
  "share_base_group" => "jtimberman",
  "shares" => [
    '~/ "Home Directory"',
    '/srv/export/timemachine "TimeMachine" allow:jtimberman cnidscheme:cdb'

To modify the options used in /etc/netatalk/afpd.conf, set the
node['netatalk']['afpd_options'] with the entire string as the
options line that should appear in the configuration file.
