Bump docker_compose_version to 1.16.1.

Ansible Role: Docker

Build Status

An Ansible Role that installs Docker on Linux.



Role Variables

Available variables are listed below, along with default values (see defaults/main.yml):

# Edition can be one of: 'ce' (Community Edition) or 'ee' (Enterprise Edition).
docker_edition: 'ce'
docker_package: "docker-{{ docker_edition }}"
docker_package_state: present

The docker_edition should be either ce (Community Edition) or ee (Enterprise Edition). You can also specify a specific version of Docker to install using a format like docker-{{ docker_edition }}-<VERSION>. And you can control whether the package is installed, uninstalled, or at the latest version by setting docker_package_state to present, absent, or latest, respectively.

docker_install_compose: true
docker_compose_version: "1.16.1"
docker_compose_path: /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Docker Compose installation options.

docker_apt_release_channel: stable
docker_apt_repository: "deb{{ ansible_distribution|lower }} {{ ansible_distribution_release }} {{ docker_apt_release_channel }}"

(Used only for Debian/Ubuntu.) You can switch the channel to edge if you want to use the Edge release.

docker_yum_repo_url:{{ docker_edition }}.repo
docker_yum_repo_enable_edge: 0
docker_yum_repo_enable_test: 0

(Used only for RedHat/CentOS.) You can enable the Edge or Test repo by setting the respective vars to 1.

Use with Ansible (and docker Python library)

Many users of this role wish to also use Ansible to then build Docker images and manage Docker containers on the server where Docker is installed. In this case, you can easily add in the docker Python library using the geerlingguy.pip role:

- hosts: all

      - name: docker

    - geerlingguy.pip
    - geerlingguy.docker



Example Playbook

- hosts: all
    - geerlingguy.docker
