That's exactly what roles do. Ansible roles allow us to configure groups of nodes at the same time, without repeating ourselves. Roles also provide a way to create modular code, which then can then be shared and reused. Naming roles A common practice is to create roles that map to each application or component of your infrastructure that you would like to configure. For example: NginxMySQLMongoDBTomcat The directory layout for roles Roles are nothing but directories laid out in a specific manner.
They neither take key-value pairs as parameters, nor are idempotent. Ansible comes preinstalled with a library of modules, which ranges from the ones which manage basic system resources to more sophisticated ones that send notifications, perform cloud integrations, and so on. If you want to provision an ec2 instance, create a database on the remote PostgreSQL server, and get notifications on IRC, then Ansible has a module for it. Isn't this amazing? No need to worry about finding an external plugin, or struggle to integrate with cloud providers, and so on.
Protagonists have friends, cars, lovers, and antagonists to complete the story. Similarly, tasks consume data, call for static or dynamic files, trigger actions, and so on. That's where files, handlers, templates, defaults, and vars come in. Vars and defaults provide data about your application/role, for example, which port your server should run on, the path for storing the application data, which user to run the service as, and so on. 3 and these allow us to provide sane defaults. These can later be overridden from other places, for example, vars, group_vars, and host_vars.
