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.

  • default - Walks through node attributes and feeds a yum_resource
  • parameters. The following is an example a resource generated by the
  • recipe during compilation.
  yum_repository 'ius' do
    mirrorlist '$basearch&protocol=http'
    description 'IUS Community Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey ''

Usage Example

To disable the ius repository through a Role or Environment definition

  :yum => {
    :ius => {
      :enabled => {

Uncommonly used repositoryids are not managed by default. This is speeds up integration testing pipelines by avoiding yum-cache builds that nobody cares about. To enable the ius-testing repository with a wrapper cookbook, place the following in a recipe:

node.default['yum']['ius-tesing']['managed'] = true
node.default['yum']['ius-tesing']['enabled'] = true
include_recipe 'yum-ius'

More Examples

Point the base and debuginfo repositories at an internally hosted server.

node.default['yum']['ius']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['ius']['mirrorlist'] = nil
node.default['yum']['ius']['baseurl'] = ''
node.default['yum']['ius']['sslverify'] = false
node.default['yum']['ius-debuginfo']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['ius-debuginfo']['mirrorlist'] = nil
node.default['yum']['ius-debuginfo']['baseurl'] = ''
node.default['yum']['ius-debuginfo']['sslverify'] = false

include_recipe 'yum-ius'
