Ansible Container is a tool for building Docker images and orchestrating containers using Ansible playbooks.
How it works
Use Ansible Container to manage the container lifecycle from development, through testing, to production:
Creates files in the current directory to get you started. Read the comments, and edit to suit your needs.
Downloads Ansible-Container-ready roles from Ansible Galaxy, and installs them in your project.
Creates images from your Ansible playbooks.
Launches the containers specified in the orchestration document, container.yml, for testing the built images. The format of container.yml is nearly identical to Docker Compose.
Pushes the project's container images to a registry of your choice, and generates a playbook capable of deploying the project on a supported cloud provider.
Install using pip, the Python package manager:
$ sudo pip install "ansible-container[docker,openshift]"
Or, to install without root privileges, use virtualenv to first create a Python sandbox:
$ virtualenv ansible-container $ source ansible-container/bin/activate $ pip install "ansible-container[docker,openshift]"
