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.

yum-pgdg Cookbook

Build Status Cookbook Version

The yum-pgdg cookbook takes over management of the default repositoryids that ship with pgdg. It allows attribute manipulation of pgdg.



  • RHEL/CentOS and derivatives
  • Fedora


  • Chef 12.1+


  • compat_resource


The following attributes are set by default

default['yum']['pgdg']['repositoryid'] = 'pgdg-9.3'
default['yum']['pgdg']['baseurl'] = '$releasever-$basearch'
default['yum']['pgdg']['description'] = 'PostgreSQL 9.3'
default['yum']['pgdg']['enabled'] = true
default['yum']['pgdg']['gpgcheck'] = true
default['yum']['pgdg']['gpgkey'] = ''


  • default - Walks through node attributes and feeds a yum_resource
  • parameters. The following is an example a resource generated by the
  • recipe during compilation.
  yum_repository 'pgdg-9.3' do
    mirrorlist '$releasever-$basearch'
    description 'PostgreSQL 9.3'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey ''

Usage Example

To disable the pgdg repository through a Role or Environment definition

  :yum => {
    :pgdg => {
      :enabled => {

More Examples

Point the base and updates repositories at an internally hosted server.

node.default['yum']['pgdg']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['pgdg']['mirrorlist'] = nil
node.default['yum']['pgdg']['baseurl'] = ''
node.default['yum']['pgdg']['sslverify'] = false
