The Git Module
The ‘Git Module’ allows us to manage git checkouts to deploy software. For Example:
# Example read-write git checkout - git: repo: ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/yourid/yourrepo.git dest: /home/folder/yourrepo
The Script Module
This module takes the script name that runs locally on the remote system. This is a good feature as other ways to run a script on ansible is time taking. This is also called the shell module. For example:
- script: /some/local/sample_script.sh --some-arguments testvar args: creates: /the/created/sample.txt
The Mail Module
This module is useful for sending emails using ansible. In complex environments there are processes that cannot be automated, either because lack of authority to make it or because people disagrees to a common approach. For example,
# Sending an e-mail from Gmail using ansible - mail: host: smtp.gmail.com port: 587 username: email@example.com password: mypassword to: mail receiver<firstname.lastname@example.org> subject: Type your subject body: 'This is your body.' delegate_to: localhost
The Notification Module
Send notification message via Slack.
- hosts: name_of_server tasks: - name: Send notification message through Slack local_action: module: slack # To retrieve your slack token, open your team settings. token: // msg: "Hello" channel: "#general" username: "ansible-notification-bot"
The syslogger Module
This module helps to add log entries to the host computer.
# Full example - name: Test syslog syslogger: msg: "Your message" priority: "err" facility: "daemon" log_pid: true # Basic usage - name: Simple Usage syslogger: msg: "File saved as daemon.info"
