Ansible install with openSUSE 13.2 and Mac

I start to study Ansible cause recently needs.

Ansible is python based, using SSH deploy packages to remote servers, it's like Puppet / Chef / Salt.

Online resource

I study from Oreilly - Ansible up & running
  • code example


How to install Ansible

Install Ansible

openSUSE 13.2 ( Most of linux could install ansible now )
Use zypper to query ansible package
# zypper   search   ansible
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...

S | Name    | Summary                                                                  | Type      
 | ansible | SSH-based configuration management, deployment, and orchestration engine | package   
 | ansible | SSH-based configuration management, deployment, and orchestration engine | srcpackage

Install Ansible
# zypper install  -y  ansible

That's all you need to do :-)

Ansible is clientless, that mean you don't need to install any packages in your remote hosts, it's the most diff with puppet and other tools.
The role is
  • The control machine
    • The one that you use to control remote machines
    • needs to have python 2.6 or later installed.  
  • To manage a server with Ansible
    • Needs to have SSH and Python 2.5 or later installed.
Most linux has python later 2.5 ( Might be python 2.7 ), that's the reason - Nothing to install

What do you need to know? ( From Oreilly book ^^ )
I think the most important point is - you could use ssh and ssh key to execute some commands in remote servers.

What do I need to know?
    • Connect to a remote machine using SSH.
    • Interact with the bash command-line shell (pipes and redirection).
    • Install packages.
    • Use the sudo command.
    • Check and set file permissions.
    • Start and stop services.
    • Set environment variables.
    • Write scripts ( Any language )
  • You don't need to know python to use Ansible unless you want to write your own module.
  • You will need to learn some YAML and Jinja2 to use Ansible.     

That's all today, I will write some Ansible module command next time.

~ enjoy it

The GNOME.Asia Committee is inviting interested parties to submit proposals for hosting GNOME.Asia Summit during the 2nd quarter of 2016.
GNOME.Asia Summit is the annual GNOME Conference in Asia. The event focuses primarily on the GNOME desktop, but also covers applications and the development platform tools. It brings together the GNOME community in Asia to provide a forum for users, developers, foundation leaders, governments and businesses to discuss the present technology and future developments.
GNOME.Asia Summits have been held in Beijing, Ho-Chi-Minh City, Taipei, Bangalore, Hong Kong, Seoul, Beijing, Depok respectively over the last eight years.
The Committees’s preference is to find a new location each year in order to spread GNOME throughout Asia and we are looking for local organizers to rise to the challenge of organizing an excellent GNOME event. The GNOME.Asia committee will assist in the process, but there is a definitive need for individuals to be actively involved and committed to the planning and execution of the event.
You can learn more about GNOME.Asia Summit at our website: http://www.gnome.asia Interested parties are hereby invited to submit a formal proposal to the GNOME Asia Committee.

We might invite you to present your proposal in more details over our regular IRC meetings or send you additional questions and requests. Results will be announced by the first week of October 2015.
The conference will require availability of facilities for 3-5 days, including a weekend, during the 2nd quarter of 2016 (between March and June). Key points which each proposals should consider and which will be taken into account when deciding among candidates, are:
  • Local community support for hosting the conference.
  • Venue details. Information about infrastructure and facilities to hold the conference should be provided.
  • Preliminary schedule with main program & different activities.
