Ansible-cmdb v1.8: Bugfixes and new columns

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

I’ve just released ansible-cmdb v1.9. 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:

  • Always output UTF-8.
  • Added the ‘json’ template, which dumps the entire inventory including variables and groups in JSON format.
  • Included a manual page in the packages.
  • The -t/–template switch can now point to an actual filename, and no longer requires the .tpl extension to be stripped.
  • html_fancy: Fixed a bug where the search field was not properly focussed.
  • html_fancy: Use vcpus for cores + hyperthreading count (Rowin Andruscavage)
  • html_fancy: New cpu, memory, swap columns and improved sorting (Rowin Andruscavage)
  • html_fancy: Show a hosts groups in the detailed view
  • html_fancy: Move and disable/enable some default columns.
  • html_fancy: Network overview table for host details.

Here’s a screenshot showing some of the new columns:
