Hey! Back in March the Ansible community team at Red Hat announced that we were planning to launch a new website at
ansible.com to coincide with the wider initiative to build a more robust web presence for the Ansible community.
We’ve shared some screenshots and wireframes in an
previous discussion. Now it’s time to get hands on and start testing things out! I’d like to invite everyone who is interested to take a look at the new
ansible.com homepage on our test site.
To take a look at the test site, visit
We want to hear from you! While you’re taking a look around, please give consideration to the following things in particular:
Responsive design. Do you notice any overflows, overlapping text, or other oddities on mobile devices?

To get involved, head over to the
website repository and either open an issue or send us a pull request. You can also reply to this thread with your thoughts and feedback.

ansible.com which is a really attractive option mainly because it has a ton of SEO authority and will avoid fragmentation. Honestly
@gwmngilfen said it all pretty well when he outlined the 2023 community strategy.
But I think that will be a “BIG” decision Red Hat has to make?
ansible.org are looks good
@gineesh I’m happy to inform that this is an effort that comes from Red Hat. There is work in progress to move platform details to the Red Hat homepage.
Hey all, if anyone has time for a review I’ve done some work on the homepage to improve the “Why Ansible” text from the wireframe.
The purpose of this text is to succinctly answer the question “What is Ansible?” to someone who has never heard of it and might not even be technically proficient.
