We’ve just released a packagecloud ansible role for installing packagecloud.io repositories!
Here is an example using this role to install a public and private repository on all of our hosts.
Note: This role only supports
RedHat ansible os families.
Check out our OS/Distribution docs to find the right
version strings to use for your distribution.
How it works
The role is basically a port of the manual repository install instructions into idempotent ansible tasks. The goal is to provide a slightly better experience for ansible users than merely using our install scripts inside of a shell module.
We’ve only just started using ansible ourselves, so we’re eager to receive any pull requests to help improve the role for the community.
Because this is a simple ansible role that only covers the common cases, it’s not as robust as we’d like it to be. Development of a full blown ansible-module (and the preceeding packagecloud python library) is on our roadmap.
