Configure your openwrt system (and variants, cerowrt in my case) using ansible.

Works with the official raw module und some custom modules to avoid having to run python on the target - no extra dependencies for your embedded target system.

Currently under development. I have a way to set uci values if needed and run commit at the end if anything changed. I am trying to at least build a superset of the shell script plus whatever i will need myself.

Be careful with blindly running it, if you connect to your openwrt via wifi and you change network settings you may lock yourself out.

See host_vars/example-gw.home.lan for how to override the role defaults in your local clone.

Installation (ansible-galaxy and librarian)

In an attempt to make this more reusable, I am trying to move all the roles to ansible galaxy and use librarian-ansible to manage dependencies. librarian-ansible uses the Ansiblefile to declare the external playbooks that ansible-openwrt requires.

To automatically retrieve dependencies:

cd ansible-openwrt
gem install librarian-ansible
librarian-ansible install


Jan Wagner (waha on github pointed out that the uci module needs to return json and contributed related fixes allowing it to work with recent versions of ansible.
