After this silly>24 crash and recover I wonder if it would be possible to manage all my Sailfish devices via ansible. Technically they have all the things you need as an ansible client:

  • ssh
  • python
  • a method to su (devel-su)
  • a package managing system (pkcon/ssu)

but for the last: does anyone created a become-method for devel-su (same with pkcon). Otherwise: what about using sudo? sudo vs. devel-su?

I am thinking about methods/roles to:

  • backup and recover configs
  • create vpn configs
  • create wifi settings (here eap-tls)
  • modify connman settings (own status urls)
  • creating special links (like ~/sdcard, symbolic configuration links into - syncthing - directories)
  • syncthing
  • upgrade via ssu/version
  • manage installed packages
  • whatever

it sounds interesting. especially if cookbooks become public... ;)

yeah - some playbook/role-set on github so that everyone can build the own setup. Start up, devel mode, usb connection and start up a master playbook...

I now have a role to get all my openvpn stuff to the phone. Unfortunately I am stuck with the su stuff. Otherwise I would be able to do the connman configuration with ansible too. Dream: Just start the playbook and the tunnel is ready for use.
