Automate code build and deployment with ansible

As a part of the ansible playbooks used for the hosts, I can add a snippet like this: gitrepos: - { url: "https://github.com/myrepo/repo.git", tag: "tagtocheckout", folder: "/root/path-for-check-out", chdir: "subdir to enter", build: "make build", exec: "build/mybuiltbinary", } With this definition in the host inventory, we can then in our playbook to perform several steps:...
