Use Ansible Synchronize Module to Sync Files Include Templates

Posted at — Jul 27, 2020

Inspired by this post, I finally find the way to sync a directory include template files to remote.

Put you files in {{ role_path }}/files/, if you need to put in another directory, please replace all the role_path variable.

- name: "Create temporary directory"
  local_action: tempfile state=directory
  register: temp_file_path

- name: "Find j2 files"
  local_action:
    module: find
    paths: "{{ role_path }}/files/"
    patterns: "*.j2"
    file_type: file
    use_regex: no
    recurse: yes
  register: files_j2

- name: "Find normal files"
  local_action:
    module: find
    paths: "{{ role_path }}/files/"
    excludes: "*.j2"
    file_type: file
    use_regex: no
    recurse: yes
  register: files_normal

- name: "Ensure directory exists"
  local_action:
    module: file
    path: "{{ item.path | replace(role_path + '/files', temp_file_path.path) | dirname }}"
    state: directory
  with_items:
    - "{{ files_j2.files }}"
    - "{{ files_normal.files }}"

- name: "Copy templates files"
  local_action:
    module: template
    src: "{{ item.path }}"
    mode: "preserve"
    dest: "{{ item.path | replace(role_path + '/files', temp_file_path.path) | regex_replace('.j2$', '') }}"
  with_items: "{{ files_j2.files }}"

- name: "Copy normal  files to temp directory"
  local_action:
    module: template
    src: "{{ item.path }}"
    mode: "preserve"
    dest: "{{ item.path | replace(role_path + '/files', temp_file_path.path) }}"
  with_items: "{{ files_normal.files }}"

- name: "Sync these to the destination"
  synchronize:
      src: "{{ temp_file_path.path }}/"
      dest: "{{ config_root }}/"
      delete: yes
      rsync_opts:
        - "--chown=root:root"
