Json and API

#JSON and API I started using Vagrant for a while to be able to spin VM's and troubleshoot or test certain configuration. For the moment I was fine with using virtualbox but, I decided to use libvirtd since I prefer it. I had no idea how to create images or where to start. I asked a co-worker and he mentioned to look at bento and packer. Bento has a whole list of json files for images in all linux flavors and builds the images for all Virtualization types. [Read More]

Fire Emblem Fates

#Fire Emblem Fates Birthright The combat is straightforward just like any turn based RPG game out there. It follows the same style as the previous games and similar to the older ones.

I'm not much of a fan of the digital versions but, I wanted to read them right away.I have to say I was hooked right away with this series. [Read More]

  • sudo dnf install fedora-upgrade

And just let all the packages go! then restart. I use the KDE version since I prefer it over GNOME.

Ansible Tower

So you have an idea what is ansible and what you can do with it. After creating, playbooks & roles and dynamic inventories, you are wondering how you can centralize and control access to your playbooks. You can do this with ansible core and limit access and permissions on the git project. You can include all the playbooks, roles and inventory files in the same repo. But, this can become a problem once the project is git clone into the controller and anyone access to the server can potentially be able to access your playbooks. [Read More]
