Ansible role that installs the Shadowsocks secure SOCKS 5 proxy (http://shadowsocks.org). A random password is automatically chosen, and a QR code is generated that makes it easy to configure the iOS and Android clients.
Gathered facts are used to determine the default IPv4 address that the server should bind to. Make sure that gather_facts is not set to "no" in your playbook.
Variables that can be set by the user (or another role)
shadowsocks_server_port: The port that the Shadowsocks server should listen on. Set to "8388" by default.
shadowsocks_local_port: The local port that Shadowsocks should listen on. Set to "1080" by default.
shadowsocks_timeout: Timeout (in seconds). Set to "600" by default.
shadowsocks_encryption_method: The encryption method that will be used to secure the connection. A list of options can be found in the Shadowsocks documentation. The default for this role is "aes-256-cfb".
