As i work with Ansible (or I try to learn Ansible) sometimes i want to test little j2 snippets (Used in templates/when conditions / others within Ansible). You can ipython (or your fav repl ) and do it manually or you can use (and contribute) to this little tool i built yesterday.
I’ve called jinrepl (lack of a better name) , and it basically evals strings into j2.template and renders it , nothing major, but with a few neat features.
pip install termcolor pip install jinja2 git clone [https://github.com/bechampion/jinrepl](https://github.com/bechampion/jinrepl) cd jinrepl python jinrepl.py
That’s pretty much everything you need so far (with the current set of features)
In line jinja rendering
Conditional and statements autocomplete
But my favourite is , embedded Vim! (haha just os.system(“vim”))
It does a fair bit more , but you can find all about it on the github repo.
