  • The project follows the standard Ansible role directory structure
    • The main code is found at tasks/
    • The main variables can be found at defaults/main/
    • Configuration templates for NGINX can be found at templates/
    • Molecule tests can be found in molecule/.
    • CI/CD is done via Travis using .travis.yml Deployment yaml files, and Helm files are found at deployments/

Code Guidelines

Git Guidelines

  • Keep a clean, concise and meaningful git commit history on your branch (within reason), rebasing locally and squashing before submitting a PR
  • Follow the guidelines of writing a good commit message as described here and summarised in the next few points
    • In the subject line, use the present tense ("Add feature" not "Added feature")
    • In the subject line, use the imperative mood ("Move cursor to..." not "Moves cursor to...")
    • Limit the subject line to 72 characters or less
    • Reference issues and pull requests liberally after the subject line
    • Add more detailed description in the body of the git message (git commit -a to give you more space and time in your text editor to write a good message instead of git commit -am)
