Ansible

A new, to me, configuration management toolset called ansible. My notes! I’ll post more when I know more. 

  1. https://www.ansible.com/get-started
  2. https://serversforhackers.com/an-ansible-tutorial
  3. https://valdhaus.co/writings/ansible-vs-shell-scripts/

Pro’s:  Based on Bash, skills easy to acquire, handles contingency, target identity and authority

Con’s: No easier to write than bash scripts, testing is no easier, requires scale to be worthwhile.
