Ansible

Ansible is a radically simple configuration-management, deployment, task-execution, and multinode orchestration framework.

Read the documentation at http://ansible.github.com

Design Principles

  • Dead simple setup
  • Super fast & parallel by default
  • No server or client daemons; use existing SSHd
  • No additional software required on client boxes
  • Modules can be written in ANY language
  • Awesome API for creating very powerful distributed scripts
  • Be usable as non-root
  • The easiest config management system to use, ever.

Get Involved

Branch Info

  • Releases are named after Van Halen songs.
  • The devel branch corresponds to release 0.7, "Panama".
  • Various release-X.Y branches exist for previous releases
  • All feature work happens on the development branch.
  • Major bug fixes will be made to the last release branch only
  • See CHANGELOG.md for release notes to track each release.

Patch Instructions

Contributions to the core and modules are greatly welcome.

  • Required Process:
    • Submit github pull requests to the "ansible/devel" branch for features
    • Fixes for bugs may also be submitted to "ansible/release-X.Y" for the last release
    • Make sure "make tests" passes before submitting any requests.
  • Bonus points:
    • Joining the mailing list
    • Fixing bugs instead of sending bug reports.
    • Using squash merges
    • Updating the "rst/*" files in the docs project and "docs/" manpage content
    • Adding more unit tests
  • Avoid:
    • Sending patches to the mailing list directly.
    • Sending feature pull requests to the 'release' branch instead of the devel branch
    • Sending pull requests to mpdehaan's personal ansible fork.
