Example Playbook

This example is taken from molecule/resources/playbook.yml:

---
- name: Converge
  hosts: all
  become: yes
  gather_facts: yes

  roles:
    - role: robertdebock.alternatives
      alternatives_list:
        - name: my_alternative_fake_binary
          link: /bin/my_alternative_fake_binary
          path: /bin/my_fake_binary

The machine you are running this on, may need to be prepared.
