man(8) Ansible on Thunix man(8)
NAME Ansible on Thunix - how we manage the server
DESCRIPTION We use ansible to manage the servers running the systems and services for Thunix. Ansible consists of a "playbook" of YAML files, that declare the state of the system.
The first step is to clone the repo used to manage the environment: git clone email@example.com:thunix/ansible.git (You will need a tidegit account for this, and a key loaded into your account there) From there, the typical github-type workflow is used: * Create a local branch, to track your issue's changes. * Commit changes to your local branch. * Send a URI pointing to your repo, with branch name to someone with merge permissions Inside of the tildegit interface: * Create a new branch, selecting option to create a branch and pull request * Make changes in your branch * Update PR * Wait for someone to merge your changes Hourly, a job runs that pulls the latest version of the repo, and the runs ansible-playbook against the playbook. A sudoer can manually run this job, if desired, and it's located at /etc/cron.hourly/ansible-pull.
