Ansible-cmdb v1.7: New columns and togglable columns

Sunday, November 8th, 2015

I’ve just released ansible-cmdb v1.7. Ansible-cmdb takes the output of Ansible’s fact gathering and converts it into a static HTML overview page containing system configuration information. It supports multiple templates and extending information gathered by Ansible with custom data.

This is a feature and bugfix release, including the following changes:

  • Support for showing only specific columns using the -c / –columns commandline argument. This must be supported by the template. Currently html_fancy and txt_table are supported.
  • The html_fancy template now properly automatically focusses the search box.
  • Two new columns were added to the html_fancy template: kernel and timestamp. (By Rowin Andruscavage)

Get the new release from the Github releases page.
