Can one deploy an environment for some Linux OS (say, Ubuntu) from a raw Github playbook in a way similar to this (I wonder if it's the correct syntax)?
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/user/repo/master/nginx-cms-addons.yml | tr -d '\r' | ansible-playbook)
Edit: This is my own Github account so there isn't a risk.
In use a similar pattern to download and execute bash scripts but I want to know if the principle is identical for Ansible playbooks.
If it matters, the environment I want to deploy directly from the Github raw
yaml configures Ubuntu a bit (firewall), installs some trivial software like
zip, a server environment (Nginx/Postfix) and that's basically it.
My purpose to execute my playbook with
ansible as a substitute for the long Bash script I currently use, made of this code, basically:
#!/bin/bash ufw --force enable && ufw allow 22,25,80,443,9000/tcp apt-get update -y && add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot -y && apt-get update -y apt-get upgrade zip unzip tree unattended-upgrades sshguard nginx python-certbot-nginx mysql-server php-fpm php-mysql php-mbstring php-mcrypt -y DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get upgrade postfix -y sed -i "s/post_max_size = .M/post_max_size = 250M/ ; s/upload_max_filesize = .M/upload_max_filesize = 250M/" /etc/php/*/fpm/php.ini sed -i "s/;cgi.fix_pathinfo=1/cgi.fix_pathinfo=0/" /etc/php/*/fpm/php.ini # sed -i "s/# gzip_/gzip_/g" /etc/nginx/nginx.conf /etc/init.d/php*-fpm restart && systemctl restart nginx.service
