Linux DevOps Automate Everything

Ansible in WSL

Yet again another step to a better direction.

sudo apt-get -y install python-pip python-dev libffi-dev libssl-dev
pip install ansible
echo 'PATH=$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc

Soon I will try to use Vagrant with Windows being the host of the VMs


Terraform in WSL

Unfortunatly, in my work, I have to use Windows It started as Windows 7 and now I’m using a Windows 10 (not fully updated).

This is the way I found to install Terraform quickly in WSL (Ubuntu).

cd /tmp
sudo mkdir -p /opt/terraform
sudo unzip /tmp/ -d /opt/terraform
export PATH="/opt/terraform:$PATH"

As I’m testing this, I will probably use my Terraform Snap package in a near future and maybe be able to run a full Linux system.


Quick vim tip

Who never opened a file with vim and then realized that you need to write but you forgot root?

###Easy fix: sudo vim ~/.vimrc add the following line

command W :execute ':silent w !sudo tee % > /dev/null' | :edit!

With this we only need to save the file like “:W”


Testing feeds

Due to a request from a friend, I have managed a way to create a RSS feed (or in this case) a Atom feed to allow my blog viewers to follow new posts!

Hope you like it!
