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.

Kibana Library Cookbook

A library cookbook for installing kibana 4.

If you wish to install Kibana3 try using the '1.3.x' releases of the cookbook.

This is a library cookbook, you can use you included kibana_lwrp::install recipe to install kibana, but it is more likely to be really useful for you to call the LWRPs directly from your own cookbook. You can use the kibana_lwrp::install recipe as a guide and customize to your needs.

This cookbook is tested and works well with the logstash and the elasticsearch cookbooks found on the chef community site.

If you'd like to point kibana to a cluster of Elasticsearch servers instead of a single node, please review the most current recommended instructions at:


As with most cookbooks I write, this one is hopefully flexible enough to be wrapped by allowing you to override as much as possible

See attributes/*.rb for attributes ( documented inline )



The default recipe does nothing except for allow access to the LWRPs.


This is designed to be an example recipe to show you how you might write a wrapper cookbook. However it should be usable for a
simple install of kibana.

  • install kibana4 /opt/kibana/XXXX and create a symlink called current in the same directory.
  • install nginx and serve the kibana application

If you wish to swap apache for nginx, simply set node['kibana']['webserver'] to apache in a role/environment/node somewhere.

If you don't want this cookbook to handle the webserver config simply set node['kibana']['webserver'] to '' in a role/environment/node somewhere.
Please note that in this case you have to set node['kibana']['user'].

Both cookbooks, by default, will configure the appropriate proxy to your ElasticSearch server such that you don't have to expose it to the world.

There is NO security enabled by default on any of the content being served.
If you would like to modify the nginx or apache parameters, you should:

  • create your own cookbook i.e. my-kibana
  • copy the template for the webserver you wish to use to your cookbook
  • modify the template as you see fit (add auth, setup ssl)
  • use the appropriate webserver template attributes to point to your cookbook and template


examples of using the LWRPs. Don't use this directly.
