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.

ChefSpec Chef Tool

ChefSpec is a unit-testing framework for Chef cookbook. It allows you to write RSpec examples and generate coverage reports for Chef recipes!

Code Climate

ChefSpec is a unit testing framework for testing Chef cookbooks. ChefSpec makes it easy to write examples and get fast feedback on cookbook changes without the need for virtual machines or cloud servers.

ChefSpec runs your cookbook locally using Chef Solo without actually converging a node. This has two primary benefits:

  • It's really fast!
  • Your tests can vary node attributes, operating systems, and search results to assert behavior under varying conditions.

Writing a Cookbook Example

If you want knife to automatically generate spec stubs for you, install knife-spec.

Given an extremely basic Chef recipe that just installs an operating system package:

package 'foo'

the associated ChefSpec test might look like:

require 'chefspec'

describe 'example::default' do
  let(:chef_run) { }

  it 'installs foo' do
    expect(chef_run).to install_package('foo')
