New Tutorials this month!
Setting up Foreman and using it with Ansible
Community member @besmirzanaj got bored of manually configuring things. This boredom led him to automating Foreman using Ansible. In true community spirit, he has shared a tutorial so that you can too! Check out his Setting up Foreman and Managing it with Ansible tutorial in our community Discourse.
If you want to know what’s new with Foreman Ansible Modules, and what you have to look forward to, check out @evgeni’s update from Community Demo #91:
Foreman Dev environment setup tutorials
@lzap turned his attention to Foreman developer setups. A stream of tutorials and vidoes followed to make it easier than ever to set up a developer environment. You can check out the written tutorials here:

If you have any questions, comments, or feedback about using the tutorials, please post to our Community Discourse.
The future of the new Puppet plugin
The work on the extraction of Puppet from Foreman is close to completion, and as a result of this, the functionality that once existed in Foreman-core will now reside in a new Puppet plugin. We hosted a meeting to gather everyone who is interested in the future of the Puppet plugin, especially its future maintenance. @ezr-ondrej led this meeting and another meeting will take place in about a month. You can rewatch the meeting here, and we will advertise the future meeting soon.
If you’ve any feedback, please feel free to let us know by starting a thread on our Community Discourse.
