Simple helper to use ansible with vagrant

Project description

Tired of the rather limited vagrant provision with the ansible provider? Tired of keeping your hosts file up to date? ansible-vagrant to the rescue!


$ pip install ansible-vagrant
$ cd /path/to/project/with/a/vagrantfile

$ ansible-vagrant-update-hosts
$ cat hosts_vagrant
vagrant  ansible_ssh_host=  ansible_ssh_port=2222  ansible_ssh_use...

$ ansible-vagrant all -m ping
# Same as: ansible-vagrant-update-hosts \
#          && ansible all --inventory=./hosts_vagrant -m ping

$ ansible-playbook-vagrant playbook.yml
# Same as: ansible-vagrant-update-hosts \
#          && ansible-playbook --extra-vars="vagrant_host=true" \
#                              --inventory=./hosts_vagrant playbook.yml


  • All *-vagrant commands use ANSIBLE_HOST_KEY_CHECKING=False to prevent errors with vagrant destroy && vagrant up

  • It’s a good idea to put hosts_vagrant under .gitignore

  • ansible-playbook-vagrant adds a global variable named vagrant

  • Use when: vagrant_host is (not) defined to run stuff based on the current environment


  • ansiblev for ansible-vagrant

  • ansible-playbookv for ansible-playbook-vagrant
