(Alternative) Package Installer for Ansible
PIA - Package Installer for Ansible
Like pip but for Ansible content, resilient content management that works fast, offline, with caching, compatible with multiple versions of ansible and a very friendly user interface.
This project aims to become an alternative to the current
command line tool, one that would address some shortcomings such as:
- Ability to run offline, especially when checking if current dependencies are up to date.
- Use caching similar to how pip does, so network access would be needed only if current data is not available locally.
- Be idempotent.
pip3 install pia
Please note that not all features are implemented yet.
