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.
As usual, you can email support or join our new packagecloud-users slack to get help with any questions or problems you may have.
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.
