My Fedora Linux list of installed applications and Ansible provision scripts

My Linux machine setup

This repository contains a List of applications and tools that are installed on my Linux Machine (Running Fedora). This is inspired by nikitavoloboev´s my-mac-os, but for Linux Based Systems.

For automated provision scripts, powered by Ansible, please check the provision folder. This scripts will provision the installation of most of these applications in an automatic way, which makes it a lot faster, to start from scratch in a new machine.


Setup a new machine from scratch is always a very time consuming task. Last time I did it I took an entire weekend to install everything. And there is a high change of forget some less used command line tool. Also as the Developer I install many tools directly from GitHub and so checking if they are updated is a very manual process, like going to GitHub, check latest release, download the binary and move it to the correct place.

What if most of that, can be automated?

That´s what this repository does. In this README file you will encounter a list of software I use and can be seen as a reference. The more interesting part is in provision folder, which contains a set of Ansible playbooks to automatically install that softtware.

As a Developer I need my main OS to be very stable but I also want to have regularly updated packages. After working with Debian based OSes for many years, in 2019 I decided to give a try to Fedora and so this playbook is optimized for Fedora.
