Hi all ! Long time since last blog post ! I’m using Jenkins with Ansible on my Nousmotards project for building docker containers or deploying into production. You may noticed that you’ve no Ansible color when running it into Jenkins!

However, you may also noticed that there’s some kind of lags on the console when you want to see a real time console log on Jenkins.

As I wanted to upgrade it and because it has been asked several time, I upgraded the consul-template Ansible role to manage official binaries (and upgrades). Here are the new vars: consul_template_version: '0.11.0' consul_template_arch: 'linux_amd64' consul_template_http_src: "https://github.com/hashicorp/consul-template/releases/download/v{{consul_template_version}}/consul_template_{{consul_template_version}}_{{consul_template_arch}}.zip" You can of course find the role to Ansible Galaxy: https://galaxy.ansible.com/deimosfr/consul-template/ I hope you’ll enjoy this new version :-)

Debian 8 is out ! After several months of freeze, it’s now ready. I’m really happy about that version because MySecureShell is finally available in the mainstream packages and the second thing is MariaDB available in the latest stable version (10). Unfortunately, Docker is not present because it has too fast cycles to be stable (source). Thanks to Debian teams for this amazing work once again :-)
