Installs Docker on:

  • Ubuntu 14.04+
  • Debian Jessie (8.5+) and Stretch

This role attempts to make every reasonable effort to follow Docker's official installation instructions for Ubuntu and Debian.

Example Play:

Very basic install utilizing the role defaults:

- name: Run docker.ubuntu
  hosts: docker
    - angstwad.docker_ubuntu

Overriding the default configration is done by overriding the role's default variables:

- name: Install Docker
  hosts: all
    - role: angstwad.docker_ubuntu
      ssh_port: 2222
      kernel_pkg_state: present


Requires python-pycurl for apt modules.

Role Variables

Please see defaults/main.yml for a comprehensive list of variables that can be overridden.




To test the role in a Vagrant environment just run vagrant up. This will create some VMs:

  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Debian Jessie 8.5
  • Debian Stretch 9.0

and it will provision them by applying this role with Ansible.

Requires ansible-playbook to be in the path.
