  • Inventory files
  • All about Ansible modules
  • Playbooks, plays, tasks
  • Variables and facts
  • Handlers
  • Conditionals and tags
  • Jinja2 templates (functions, filters, loops, variables, etc.)
  • Roles

    Hey Micheal!

    Ah, great question / comment about Python 2 and 3. I'm going to check into this - there is already a little bit of this that I was dealing with earlier today :).

    I'm really looking forward to seeing this completed. Since Ansible requires, for now at least, Python 2.7 still ( :/ ), could you add in something about virtualenv? Ubuntu and other distros are starting to move to Python 3 now and that might cause problems for people.
