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.

As the Windows cookbook is no longer maintained many of the methods we used were deprecated
in Ruby 2.7 but were never fixed. These methods have now been removed in Ruby 3.0

  • Move resource documentation to the documentation/resource directory.
  • Update README to reflect new usage

  • Update to 7-Zip 19.00

  • Having a simple resource to setup 7-zip allows other resources (since including a recipe inside a resource is not a good pattern) to use it to ensure that their prerequisites are installed before-hand.
  • This resource leverage existing attributes as default values to keep backward compatibility.
  • The seven_zip::default recipe's code has been refactored to just use this resource.


  • Support Chef 13, drop support for Chef 12.
