We are proud to announce the release of version 0.1.0 of our new ansible collection.

The ansible-hiera-data project was established to provide a puppet like organisation of configuration data.

Warning: This version is marked as pre-release. Do not use it for productive systems.

Minor Changes

  • Add a wrapper function combine_vars to be compatible to default ansible.
  • Add configuration parameters to manage hash and list behavior.
  • Add method to parse configuration file (e.g. hieradata.yml).
  • After loading, the vars will be combined with ansible functions.
  • Change parameter names. Remove prefix to make documentation more clear.
  • If last part is directory it can have no, one or multiple files in it.
  • Last part of hierarchy can be file or directory.
  • Load files from hierarchy.
  • Parse entity name into hiera_vars dict.
  • The hiera_vars dict can be used to generate a dynamic hierarchy.
  • These function tages two extra parameters hash_behavior and list_behavior to configure this feature as needed.
