Packer is a really great solution to make an image in several formats (VirtualBox, Docker…). I recently wanted to deploy it on a Jenkins server to automatically perform image build with the help of Packer.
That’s why I’ve wrote a Packer role for Ansible really easy to use. You simply have to set (or let them by defaults) vars:
# Packer version to install
# Packer destination folder
It will install the desired version 🙂
