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.

  • Java
  • Nginx

  • Sysctl
  • Yum-EPEL



Linux default attributes

  • node['java']['jdk_version'] - Java version, default 'OpenJDK 8'
  • node['postfix']['main']['relayhost'] - Relayhost for Postfix when default['zammad']['local_mta'] = true, default ''
  • node['zammad']['local_mta'] - Setup a local Postfix MTA for Zammad, default 'true'
  • node['zammad']['local_es'] - Setup a local Elasticsearch for Zammad, default 'true'
  • node['zammad']['use_proxy'] - Use the Chef http_proxy when downloading ES plugins, default 'false'
  • node['zammad']['nginx_server_name'] - Server name to use in the Nginx zammad.conf file, default 'localhost'



Includes the zammad::elasticsearch and/or postfix recipes depending on whether they are enabled via attributes.


Configures the node to run elasticsearch locally. Generates a generic ES setup based on the defaults in the Elasticsearch cookbook. It also runs two rake commands to complete the ES setup for Zammad.


The default recipe will:

  • Setup Zammad Repo
  • Install Java
  • Install Nginx and deploy a default zammad.conf from the template
  • Install Zammad
  • Install and setup an Elasticsearch cluster, optional
  • Install and setup Postfix MTA, optional

If you want to install the default Elasticsearch cluster, set the default['zammad']['local_es'] to true. Use of an exteral Elasticsearch server is supported but currently out of the scope of this cookbook.

If you want to setup the local Postfix MTA for Zammad to use, set the default['zammad']['local_mta'] to true. If you'd rather setup Zammad to use an external SMTP server, set this to false.
