openbsd-run is an Ansible playbook embedded in Python for performing actions against OpenBSD hosts.
This project only supports OpenBSD. You may test it by using the included Vagrantfile or by setting up an instance on a hosting provider.
If you would rather use the raw playbook you may do so without any atypical setup.
By wrapping the Ansible playbook and the various plays with a command line interface we can provide familiar commands that run in parallel on hosts defined in an inventory.
You may use
pip instead of
poetry, though we’ll only cover using the
latter since that’s what’s used for running, developing and testing.
$ poetry install --no-dev $ poetry run openbsd-run -h Usage: openbsd-run [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]... Options: -H, --host_pattern TEXT Host pattern to match against inventory -i, --inventory TEXT Ansible inventory file -q, --quiet Suppress Ansible output -v, --verbose Increase Ansible output --version Show the version and exit. -h, --help Show this message and exit. Commands: pkg_add Add or update packages pkg_delete Remove packages syspatch Patch host(s) using syspatch sysupgrade Upgrade host(s) using sysupgrade
The primary goal of this project is to make doing native OpenBSD “things” from a remote system trivially possible. General administration and setting up a mirror are two good examples, and you’re likely to see scaffolding in the raw playbook.
If you would like to run OpenBSD via Vagrant for testing locally, please see https://github.com/jcmdln/openbsd-vagrant which provides an OpenBSD box that only uses what is already provided in a base install.
