YouTrack is an issue tracking system developed by JetBrains. You can run it on your own servers, or pay a subscription and run it from JetBrains's servers. It is an excellent example of a turnkey software, i.e. software that you run without modification for most of its lifetime.

docker_youtrack custom Chef recipe that installs a Docker container running YouTrack on a utility instance inside an Engine Yard Cloud environment.
Even if you don't plan to install YouTrack yourself, you can still follow along. Understanding how this recipe functions is a good starting point for writing your own Chef recipe that installs an application of your choice.
