Welcome to ansible-container!

Ansible Container is the ultimate workflow for container development, testing, and deployment.

Ansible Container enables you to build Docker images and orchestrate containers using only Ansible playbooks. Describe your application in a Docker Compose-like format and, rather than using a Dockerfile, provide a playbook with tasks for building images. Ansible Container will take it from there.

With Ansible Container, you are no longer limited by Dockerfile. You can now apply the power of Ansible to the image build process. Use templates, copy files, drop in encrypted data, handle errors, add conditionals, and more. Everything Ansible brings to orchestrating your infrastructure can now be applied to the image build process.

But Ansible Container does not stop there. Use Ansible Container to run the application, and push images to private and public registries. When you are ready to deploy to the cloud, use it to generate an Ansible role that automates the deployment.
