debops.python default variables

General configuration

python__enabled

Enable or disable Python management via the debops.python role.

python__enabled: True
python__raw_apt_cache_valid_time

During Python bootstrapping, check if the APT cache was modified X minutes ago (must be a negative number), by default 12h. If the APT cache is older than the specified time in minutes, the role will automatically refresh it. Set to 0 to refresh the APT cache on each Ansible run.

python__raw_apt_cache_valid_time: '-{{ 60 * 60 * 12 }}'

Python 3 management

python__v3

Enable or disable support for Python 3 management. Python 3 will be automatically disabled on some OS releases due to missing or outdated Python 3 packages.

python__v3: '{{ False
                if (ansible_distribution_release|d() in
                    [ "wheezy", "precise" ])
                else True }}'
python__core_packages3

List of core Python 3 APT packages to install. These packages will be installed in the "raw" mode as well as during normal role operation.

python__core_packages3:
  - 'python3'
  - 'python3-apt'
python__base_packages3

List of base Python 3 packges to install via APT. These packages should allow creation of Python 3 virtual environments and installation of Python packages via the pip3 command from the PyPI repository, as well as Ansible opration on the remote host.

python__base_packages3:
  - 'python3-httplib2'
  - 'python3-pip'
  - 'python3-setuptools'
  - 'python3-pycurl'
  - 'python3-virtualenv'
  - 'python3-wheel'
  - 'virtualenv'

Python 2 management

python__v2

Enable or disable support for Python 2.7 management. Python 2.7 support will be automatically disabled if the ansible_python_interpreter inventory variable is set to /usr/bin/python3, or Ansible detects the Python 3.x interpreter dynamically, otherwise it will be enabled by default on older OS releases.

On Debian Buster and beyond, Python 2.7 support is disabled by default to configure a Python 3.x-only environment. If the role detects an installed Python 2.7 environment with Ansible local facts during normal operation, the 2.7 environment will be enabled.

If Python 2.7 support is disabled, using the role in the "raw" mode will purge Python 2.7 packages automatically. This can be controlled by the python__raw_purge_v2 variable.

python__v2: '{{ ansible_local.python.installed2
                if (ansible_local|d() and ansible_local.python|d() and
                    ansible_local.python.installed2 is defined)
                else (True
                      if ((ansible_python_interpreter|d("")).endswith("python") or
                          (discovered_interpreter_python|d("")).endswith("python") or
                           (python__register_raw_release|d() and
                            (python__register_raw_release.stdout|d("")).strip() in

                              "precise", "trusty", "xenial" ]))
                      else False) }}'

Python 2/3 package installation

python__core_packages

List of APT packages that contains core Python packages selected by the role for installation. These packages will be installed in the "raw" mode as well as during normal operation. This variable is used in the role tasks.

python__core_packages: '{{ (python__core_packages3

Python 2 package purging

python__raw_purge_v2

Enable or disable purging of the Python 2.7 packages in the "raw" mode. This is useful if you want to completely remove Python 2.7 environment during host bootstrapping, and will be enabled by default if the ansible_python_interpreter inventory variable is set to /usr/bin/python3.

The packages will not be purged if the role detects the presence of the /etc/ansible/facts.d/python.fact script.

python__raw_purge_packages2

List of Python 2.7 APT packages which will be purged by the role in the "raw" mode.

python__raw_purge_packages2:
  - 'python'
  - 'python2.7'
  - 'libpython2.7-minimal'

PIP configuration

python__pip_version_check

Whether PIP should check for version updates itself. Defaults to False because the system takes care of PIP updates.

python__pip_version_check: False
