OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

Red Hat has re­leased the open source An­si­ble Galaxy project to en­able au­to­ma­tion with com­mu­nity in­te­gra­tion. This new an­nounce­ment of­fers a hub for de­vel­op­ers to share An­si­ble Roles de­vel­op­ments pub­licly.

The open source avail­abil­ity of An­si­ble Galaxy high­lights Red Hat’s in­ter­est in the ever-grow­ing open source com­mu­nity. At the same time, the lat­est project ex­pands An­si­ble Roles, which presently acts as the ‘com­mon lan­guage’ of An­si­ble func­tion­al­ity and of­fers con­tent di­rec­to­ries to en­able re­use, refac­tor­ing and shar­ing of pro­cesses be­tween var­i­ous teams, or­gan­i­sa­tions and en­vi­ron­ments.

“The An­si­ble com­mu­nity is thriv­ing, and Red Hat hopes that by open sourc­ing the An­si­ble Galaxy code repos­i­tory, we will be able to ad­vance open source au­to­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, and specif­i­cally An­si­ble Galaxy, in new and in­ter­est­ing ways,” said Tim Cramer, head of en­gi­neer­ing for An­si­ble,

Red Hat, in a state­ment.

An­si­ble is well es­tab­lished among busi­nesses. In fact, a large num­ber of For­tune 100 com­pa­nies are al­ready us­ing An­si­ble au­to­ma­tion to main­tain their pri­vate cloud en­vi­ron­ments. An­si­ble Roles works as pre-pack­aged, ready-to-run sys ad­min tasks to pro­vide de­vel­op­ers a sim­ple way to ac­cess their servers.

How­ever, the open sourc­ing of the An­si­ble project helps com­pa­nies set up a pri­vate Galaxy server and re­di­rect it to their pri­vate Galaxy repos­i­tory. There are also op­tions to let de­vel­op­ers and sys­tems ad­min­is­tra­tors sub­mit new fea­tures and en­hance­ments di­rectly to the An­si­ble Galaxy code­base us­ing the open source so­lu­tion.

Soft­ware de­vel­op­ers can ac­cess the An­si­ble project us­ing their ex­ist­ing GitHub ac­count. The Python based code is also avail­able on the on­line repos­i­tory to cus­tomise ex­pe­ri­ence.
