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.

packagecloud cookbook

This cookbook provides an LWRP for installing repositories.

NOTE: Please see the Changelog below for important changes if upgrading from 0.0.19 to 0.1.0.


Be sure to depend on packagecloud in metadata.rb so that the packagecloud
resource will be loaded.

For public repos:

packagecloud_repo "computology/packagecloud-cookbook-test-public" do
  type "deb"

For private repos, you need to supply a master_token:

packagecloud_repo "computology/packagecloud-cookbook-test-private" do
  type "deb"
  master_token "762748f7ae0bfdb086dd539575bdc8cffdca78c6a9af0db9"

For packagecloud:enterprise users, add base_url to your resource:

packagecloud_repo "computology/packagecloud-cookbook-test-private" do
  base_url ""
  type "deb"
  master_token "762748f7ae0bfdb086dd539575bdc8cffdca78c6a9af0db9"

For forcing the os and dist for repository install:

packagecloud_repo 'computology/packagecloud-cookbook-test-public' do
  type 'rpm'
  force_os 'rhel'
  force_dist '6.5'

Valid options for type include deb, rpm, and gem.

This cookbook performs checks to determine if a package exists before attempting
to install it. To enable proxy support for these checks (not to be confused
with proxy support for your package manager of choice), add the following
attributes to your cookbook:

default['packagecloud']['proxy_host'] = ''
default['packagecloud']['proxy_port'] = '80'

Interactions with other cookbooks

On CentOS 5, the official chef yum cookbook overwrites the file
/etc/yum.conf setting some default values. When it does this, the cachedir
value is changed from the CentOS5 default to the default value in the
cookbook. The result of this change is that any packagecloud repository
installed before a repository installed with the yum cookbook will appear as
though it's gpg keys were not imported.

There are a few potential workarounds for this:

  • Pass the "-y" flag to package resource using the options attribute. This should cause yum to import the GPG key automatically if it was not imported already.
  • Move your packagecloud repos so that they are installed last, after any/all repos installed via the yum cookbook.
  • Set the cachedir option in the chef yum cookbook to the system default value of /var/cache/yum using the yum_globalconfig resource.

CentOS 6 and 7 are not affected as the default cachedir value provided by
the yum chef cookbook is set to the system default, unless you use the
yum_globalconfig resource to set a custom cachedir. If you do set a custom
cachedir, you should make sure to setup packagecloud repos after that
resource is set so that the GPG keys end up in the right place.

This is the Changelog for the packagecloud cookbook

v0.2.4 (2016-07-05)

Add proxy_host and proxy_port attributes so that the cookbook can contact the
packagecloud server.

v0.2.3 (2016-06-01)

Try to fix metadata_expire type (set as String)

v0.2.2 (2016-06-01)

Try to fix metadata_expire type (set as Integer)

v0.2.1 (2016-05-31)

Set metadata_expire option to default of 300 (5 minutes) to match the
generated configs produced by the bash and manual install instructions.

v0.2.0 (2016-02-17)

Rework GPG paths to support new GPG endpoints for repos with repo-specific GPG
keys. Old endpoints/URLs still work, too.

v0.1.0 (2015-09-08)

packagecloud cookbook versions 0.0.19 used an attribute called
default['packagecloud']['hostname'] for caching the local machine's hostname
to avoid regenerating read tokens.

This attribute has been removed as it is confusing and in some edge cases,

Beginning in 0.1.0, you can use
default['packagecloud']['hostname_override'] to specify a hostname if ohai
is unable to determine the hostname of the node on its own.

v0.0.1 (2014-06-05)

Initial release.

v0.0.1 (2014-06-05)

Initial release!
