Short Description
Ansible image for Phansible role testing
Full Description

Docker ansible

Ansible in a docker container
The main objective of this image is to help phansible developers to test their roles when developing
It can be used as a normal ansible image but we will not provide support for that use case

Testing a role

The image provides a bash entrypoint to help you testing the role.
Let's use role-apache as our role and ubuntu 14.04 as our environment for this example.

Syntax check

In order to check if the syntax of your role is correct:

docker run --rm -it -v "$PWD:/roles/role-apache" -e "ROLE=role-apache" phansible/ansible:ubuntu1404 syntax

This is the default command for the image, so you can also type

docker run --rm -it -v "$PWD:/roles/role-apache" -e "ROLE=role-apache" phansible/ansible:ubuntu1404

Run the provisioning

To test if the provision does not fail

docker run --rm -it -v "$PWD:/roles/role-apache" -e "ROLE=role-apache" phansible/ansible:ubuntu1404 run

Idempotency check

For us, idempotency is key in our roles. To ensure that your changes are idempotent do:

docker run --rm -it -v "$PWD:/roles/role-apache" -e "ROLE=role-apache" phansible/ansible:ubuntu1404 idempotent

Other testings

In some cases you may need to enter the container and execute a few checks manually. For that just run

docker run --rm -it -v "$PWD:/roles/role-apache" -e "ROLE=role-apache" phansible/ansible:ubuntu1404 bash
