Osx Ansible

  
Ansible

Last month I updated my development machine to the shiny new El Capitan. Unfortunately as a zsh and tmux user I ran into a very annoying bug and so I was forced to re-install my MBP with Yosemite. Because I belong to the power users which tend to customise their installations a lot and because I like automation I decided I was going to automate this cumbersome job for once and for all. Of course, with my favourite configuration management tool: Ansible.

It appears I’m not the only one and found Jeff Geerling’s excellent mac-dev-playbook repository. The README.md contains a lot of useful information and the repository is an excellent starting point. I’ve also used it as starting point for my own repository. In this post I’ll explain the most important details of my setup.

Because Ansible collections are not able to depend on roles, you will need to make sure that role is installed either by manually installing it with the ansible-galaxy command, or adding it under the roles section of your requirements.yml file:- roles: - name: elliotweiser.osx-command-line-tools collections: - name: geerlingguy.mac Usage. Ansible has since gained a better-implemented official osxdefaults module. What made me give up on this was the upgrade experience. I’ve found that each new macOS changes some of the plist files and keys around, and worst I would only find when doing a fresh re-install, since it keeps the old ones when upgrading in place.

Osx Ansible

I like Homebrew to install packages on my Mac so that’s also what I use in my Ansible setup. There is a ready to use Ansible role available – also created by Jeff Geerling – which I recommend. To use it:

To configure the role to suit your needs you have to edit vars/main.yml. My current version as an example:
