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.

Build a repository, using Chef.


Currently only providing apt based repositories

Usage (easy)

Setup the incoming repository by adding repository::incoming to the run list.
This will create a directory (by default at /srv/repository_incoming). Drop
packages there and run Chef. Chef will automatically add them into the
repository. Yay!

default[:repository][:incoming][:codename] = node.lsb.codename
default[:repository][:incoming][:name] = 'incoming'
default[:repository][:incoming][:architecture] = 'amd64'
default[:repository][:incoming][:label] = 'Incoming Repository'
default[:repository][:incoming][:description] = 'Incoming repository for dropped off packages'
default[:repository][:incoming][:directory] = '/srv/repository_incoming'
default[:repository][:incoming][:multi_version] = true
default[:repository][:incoming][:enable_locally] = true

Usage (involved)

Adding repository

You can add your own repository components using the repos array attribute. For

node.set[:repository][:repos] = [
  :name => 'my_packages',
  :codename => 'precise',
  :architecture => %w(amd64),
  :multi_version => true

or via the LWRP:

repository 'my_packages' do
  codename 'precise'
  architecture %w(amd64)
  multi_version => true

Adding Packages

Add packages to the repository by using the repository_package LWRP:

repository_package '/path/to/my/cool/package.deb' do
  repository 'my_packages'


Keys are required to sign packages and repository files. They can be provided
via data bag, encrypted data bag, or automatically generated on the node. By
default the keys will be auto generated using the gpg cookbook.

Data bag

  • To enable data bag based keys: node.set[:repository][:pgp_data_bag] = true
  • To enable encrypted data bag based keys: node.set[:repository][:pgp_data_bag] = 'encrypted'

Encrypted data bags will use the default secret for decryption.

Data bag structure

  "id": "pgp",
  "email": "",
  "private": "PRIVATE KEY CONTENTS",
