When passing configuration files to this role as parameters, it’s recommended to add a .yml or .yaml extension to the each file.

It is also recommended to add three dashes at the top of each file:


You can include in the file the variables required for your tasks:

  - [gedit, rolldice]

If you want this role to load list of items from files and URLs you can set the expand variable to true:

packages: /home/username/my-config.yml

expand: true

If the expand variable is false, any file path or URL found will be treated like plain text.
