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.

Data Bags

This cookbook uses a required data bag item per mainboard to configure which sensors should be ignored. This allows you to ignore fans or temperature sensors present in the chipset, but not actually used by the system manufacturer. The cookbook will attempt to load a databag item with the ID of the mainboard in the sensors data bag. The ID can be found using Ohai at node['dmi']['base_board']['product_name']. Example data bags are included in the example_databags directory.
