Ansible is a radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy and maintain. Automate everything from code deployment to network configuration to cloud management, in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems.

  • How to test your Ansible playbook with Vagrant | 2021-09-20
    I went for a golden oldie: Ansible While I had worked with it before, it was mainly putting some roles together run the script and validate, manually, that it worked.

  • Selfhosted Is Intimidating
    I’m also a huge fan of Ansible. You can use it to access any number of local servers and/or cloud VPS instances via SSH, configure them, set up security, set up your services, do updates, and more all through a simple CLI. Check out:

    That sounds very similar to this issue and accompanying PRs, which are in the grey area of "is-it-a-bug-or-a-feature".

  • If you want to get into the DevOps world ....
    You've reached capacity of the system - CPU is maxed out. You need another node in the cluster. How do you provision a new machine? What packages do you ned to install in that system? This is typically done with Terraform ( ) or ansible ( - btw Python3 in templates)

  • Blame & Complexity – Prioritizing Impact with Joe Nuspl | 2021-08-25
    Jonan: Nice. This complexity issue that we touched on a little bit, I love where software is going. The world is getting easier and more difficult at the same time, though. I think technologies like we were talking about Chef a little bit. We had Chef and Puppet, and then Ansible came onto the scene. And now we're using Kubernetes and other...I mean, they're a little bit different tools, a lot of the HashiCorp. What is that HashiCorp one? Terraform users. It's easier, and also, there's a lot more to learn. Kubernetes is easily a multi-year education if you want to know it deeply. And do you think that we're making progress in spite of all that? It doesn't feel like progress some days when I'm banging my head against some YAML file.

    If you use Ansible, and you should, make sure you enable Cowsay for it. It brightens my day.

  • Nextcloud appliance not production ready
    Ok that sounds complex for a little home lab setup to be honest. I also have a Nextcloud but it is running on a scooter computer and the setup is automated with Ansible. The virtualization was an abstraction layer I did not want to drag into this and I have been happy with the setup for years. If the scooter cannot handle more services / load I can just add more scooters.
  • I’m new to python
    Are you familiar with Ansible? It's a tidy little front end for a bunch of python magic that makes deployment and automation across systems a breeze.
