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.

solr_6 Cookbook

Coverage Status Build Status

Cookbook to install, configure, and start a Solr server (version 6).

Solr 6 comes prepackaged with its own installation script, this cookbook simply prepares an appropriate environment and executes that install script.


  • solr_6::install - This will install Java (optional), download Solr, configure, install, and start the server.
  • solr_6::deploy - This will download a tarball containing one or more solr cores to the SOLR_HOME directory and restart the server. This is useful for bootstraping Solr when not using Solr Cloud.

Currently only publicly available urls can be downloaded. Providing more options could be added down the road (see Contributing).

One or more Solr core directories can be stored at the root of the archive. The provided url will be downloaded and extracted directly into the SOLR_HOME directory. Solr 6 provides core autodiscovery so cores should be available immediately after the service restarts.
