Molecule is designed to aid in the development and testing of Ansible roles. By building the scaffolding for running Ansible role tests on a virtual machine or container of choice, we don't have to setup our testing environment manually. Molecule leverages Vagrant, Docker, and OpenStack to manage virtual machines or containers, and supports Serverspec, Testinfra, or Goss to run the tests. The default steps in the sequence facility model include: virtual machine management, Ansible linting, idempotence testing and convergence testing. Although it is a fairly young project, we see a great potential for its usage.
