Jump-start your automation project with great content from the Ansible community. Galaxy provides pre-packaged units of work known to Ansible as roles. Roles can be dropped into Ansible PlayBooks and immediately applied to your infrastructure.
Use Browse Roles to find roles for your project. Then download a role onto your Ansible host using the “ansible-galaxy” command that comes bundled with Ansible.
$ ansible-galaxy install username.rolename
Be an active member of the community and help other Ansible users by sharing roles you create.
Maybe you have a role for installing and configuring a popular software package or a role for deploying software built by your company. Whatever it is, use Galaxy to share it.
Top content authors will be featured, achieving worldwide fame. Or at least, fame on the internet among developers and sysadmins just like yourself!
Integration with GitHub allows starring roles directly in Galaxy. When you find a role that you really like, let the community know by clicking the button.
As its star count grows a role will rise in popularity, eventually appearing on the Most Starred list on the Explore Page. While looking for roles on Browse Roles, sort by star count to see which roles are most popular.
