ARA Records Ansible
ARA Records Ansible playbooks and makes them easier to understand and troubleshoot.
ARA saves playbook results to a local or remote database by using an Ansible callback plugin and provides an API to integrate this data in tools and interfaces.
This project provides the ARA API as well as the Ansible components.
For the web client interface, see ara-web.

You can browse this data through the API by executing
and pointing your browser at http://127.0.0.1:8000/.
That's it !
Documentation for installing, configuring, running and using ARA is available on readthedocs.io.
