Renders template files providing a create/update override interface

  • The module contains the template functionality with the ability to override items in config, in transit, through the use of a simple dictionary without having to write out various temp files on target machines. The module renders all of the potential jinja a user could provide in both the template file and in the override dictionary which is ideal for deployers who may have lots of different configs using a similar code base.
  • The module is an extension of the copy module and all of attributes that can be set there are available to be set here.
