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.

yum-fedora Cookbook

Cookbook Version
CI State

The yum-fedora cookbook takes over management of the default repositoryids that ship with Fedora systems. It allows attribute manipulation of fedora, fedora-debuginfo, fedora-source, updates, updates-debuginfo, updates-source, updates-testing, updates-testing-debuginfo, and updates-testing-source


This cookbook is maintained by the Sous Chefs. The Sous Chefs are a community of Chef cookbook maintainers working together to maintain important cookbooks. If you’d like to know more please visit or come chat with us on the Chef Community Slack in #sous-chefs.

  • 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 'fedora' do
    mirrorlist '$releasever&arch=$basearch'
    description 'Fedora $releasever - $basearch'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey 'file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch'

Usage Example

To disable the Fedora Updates repository through a Role or Environment definition

  :yum => {
    :updates => {
      :enabled => {

Uncommonly used repositoryids are not managed by default. This is speeds up integration testing pipelines by avoiding yum-cache builds that nobody cares about. To enable the Fedora Debuginfo repository with a wrapper cookbook, place the following in a recipe:

node.default['yum']['fedora-debuginfo']['managed'] = true
node.default['yum']['fedora-debuginfo']['enabled'] = true
include_recipe 'yum-fedora'

More Examples

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

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

include_recipe 'yum-fedora'
