hey I know I say that often (approximately every time I have to touch it) but fuck ansible, fuck yaml, and fuck jinja2.

thank you for your attention!

@wxcafe yaml is the worst format ever created by mankind

@wxcafe wait, no, maybe not THE worst but it's up there alongside jade/pug, EJS, and haml

@wxcafe What do you prefer? Errors because trailing commas or errors because you used a space instead of a tabs (or whatevr yaml uses idk) and you lose 30min before seeing it because 90% of text editors don't show the difference?

@Eramdam idk I have a thing in vim where it converts everything to the correct format when exiting, it's like a single config line

the problem I was having is that I'm trying to reverse the jinja that was clearly written by looking at the yaml

@wxcafe I refuse to believe that jinja is not a typo

@wxcafe But wait, I thought Ansible was supposed to be simple?
