Ansible documentation lookup for GNU Emacs:

Ansible documentation in GNU Emacs


As usual, from MELPA or MELPA Stable, with M-x package-install RET ansible-doc.

In your Cask file:

(source melpa)

(depends-on "ansible-doc")

In your init.el:

(add-hook 'yaml-mode-hook #'ansible-doc-mode)


In a YAML Mode buffer, press C-c ? (ansible-doc) to view the documentation of an Ansible Module. The command prompts for the name of a module, defaulting to the module at point if any.

The first invocation of ansible-doc may take some time, because the command assembles a list of all Ansible modules for completion.
