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.

The following attributes are used in recipe[heartbeat::config] to
pass into the LWRP used there. Each corresponds to a resource
attribute in the LWRP, making the recipe drivable with attributes,
e.g. set in a role. See the heartbeat resource attributes below for

  • node['heartbeat']['config']['auto_failback']
  • node['heartbeat']['config']['autojoin']
  • node['heartbeat']['config']['compression']
  • node['heartbeat']['config']['compression_threshold']

  • node['heartbeat']['config']['initdead']
  • node['heartbeat']['config']['keepalive']
  • node['heartbeat']['config']['logfacility']

Manages the haresources resource_groups.



Installs the heartbeat and heartbeat-dev packages, and manages the
heartbeat service. The recipe does not at this time manage any configuration.

the service.

Use the LWRP in your own recipe, or set the attributes described above
