Top 23 Ansible Open-Source Projects

  • Ansible

    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.

  • kubespray

    Project mention: Self-Managed Kubernetes Distributions | | 2022-11-13

    No worries! I use AWX with Ansible and love it. For this use case I think that is moving in the direction away from what I'm already using (i.e. more advanced). I don't think I need that level of flexibility when it comes to controlling the lifecycle of K8s nodes. Essentially what I'm looking for is something like managed K8s but leaning more towards the self-managed side to have some more level of control, e.g. easy swapping of the CNI or CSI. Another tricky thing is upgrading nodes, which kubespray has established playbooks for. Upgrading K8s via custom playbooks sounds way over my head right now, I can't see benefit in doing that (for myself personally, of course) over using the kubespray playbooks which are robust.

  • awx

  • homelab

    Project mention: Kubernetes dev homelab & NAS | | 2022-12-03

    So I 've got inspired by and initially after lurking this sub for a while I came up with a plan to consider some of these solutions: - openmediavault as a VM to use 2x4TB /w ext4 & mergerFS or TrueNAS in RAID1 - I think mergerFS gives more options to increase storage with extra drives later, but I don't plan to hoard lots of data. Also rather opted for tiered cache via SSD to save some power but if such lot of VMs would write this would work? - nextcloud VM to easiely manage files via browser and have mobile app sync for photos with some kind of gallery plugins etc - I think this may be optional if there's other solution as nextcloud seems to not be light. Or something like Seafile would be enough? - kubernetes - k3s/microk8s single VM node or 2 VM nodes - would I need more? and so - can then openmediavault be used as a storage for it like TrueNAS? - Rancher - if used k3s - I quite liked the UI of rancher desktop, more than portainer when I tried with microk8s, but I don't pass on using something else, eg. Lens - Gitea - for hosting code - tekton / teamcity - for running tests and commit build hooks - fluxCD / argoCD - for deploying builds to kubernetes
