Ansible on Windows via Cygwin
I collaborate with developers that works on windows. While it’s not a problem with Java, IDE (from Eclipse to IntelliJ), and mercurial (tortoisehg) and git, it’s a problem if you use Ansible for the deployments.
While the best would be have a build server, continuous integration (and deployment), it takes time and moreover needs a mind-shift on the overall team. As a general advise, I think it’s better introduce the tools one-by-one, so the developers can experience the benefits of it and then glue all together hereafter.
