It's also possible to easily share roles with the community or download roles that have been created by other members of the community with Ansible Galaxy.
Ansible ships with a command line tool called
ansible-galaxy that can be used to install roles in the role directory defined in the
ansible-galaxy install username.rolename
You can also use the Ansible Galaxy tool to download roles from other locations such as GitHub by creating a text file with the location defined as
- src: https://github.com/username/rolename
And then install the roles in the text file like so:
ansible-galaxy install -r requirements.txt
You can also use the
ansible-galaxy tool to create role "scaffolding":
ansible-galaxy init rolename
Once you've created a role and uploaded it to GitHub you can share it on Ansible Galaxy by linking to your GitHub repo in Ansible Galaxy after signing in.
