Probing Ansible Bonds with Molecule tests
The maxim "Test all the things" has not only become a winged word, but is also correct in its basic idea.
Ansible is no exception and not least because of the planned restructuring towards a collection system, where single roles including their necessary modules should be available as entities for import, it is necessary to be able to test single Ansible roles.
The Ansible Molecule Framework - since October 2018 officially in its "new home under Ansible by RedHat" - offers these possibilities and tries to support different providers. In this talk we want to provide an insight into Molecule usage and discuss the possibilities and challenges that it brings.
