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.

Magento Cookbook

Collection of recipes to build app stack for the Magento deployments with


Run the following commands with-in your Chef Repository:

knife cookbook site install magento
knife cookbook upload magento


NOTE: currently here is no recipes to deploy magento itself except
[magento::sample], so, I encourage everyone to contribute deployment
workflows :)

  1. first of all checkout the recipes available, see metadata.rb
  2. decide the prefered frontend, i.e. nginx, apache, etc.
  3. decide if you will put database and frontend on a single or different nodes
  4. include the recipes where you want the app stack and database configured

For example, you could start with the following Chef Roles:

# roles/app.rb
name "app"
run_list "recipe[magento::nginx]"

# roles/db.rb
name "db"
run_list "recipe[magento::mysql]"
default_attributes "mysql" => {
"bind_address" => "",
"tunable" => {
    "innodb_buffer_pool_size" => "1GB",
    "table_cache" => "1024",
    "query_cache_size" => "64M",
    "query_cache_limit" => "2M"

And then bootstrap Rackspace Cloud Servers instance with:

knife rackspace server create 'role[app],role[db]' --server-name magebox --image 49 --flavor 3

Or if you like to deploy sample site:

knife rackspace server create 'recipe[magento::sample]' --server-name magebox --image 49 --flavor 3

See Launch Cloud Instances with Knife for the reference.
