ansible-language-server extension for coc.nvim




:CocInstall @yaegassy/coc-ansible

scoped packages


Plug 'yaegassy/coc-ansible', {'do': 'yarn install --frozen-lockfile'}


[!! Very important !!] Filetype related

  1. The "filetype" must be yaml.ansible for this extension to work.

    If you install ansible's vim plugin, yaml.ansible filetype will be added automatically, which is very useful (e.g. pearofducks/ansible-vim or sheerun/vim-polyglot).

  2. You also need to set g:coc_filetype_map in .vimrc/init.vim.

    let g:coc_filetype_map = {
      \ 'yaml.ansible': 'ansible',
      \ }

Requirements (Tools)

  • Ansible 2.9+
  • Ansible Lint (required, unless you disable linter support)
    • [TIPS] coc-ansible will automatically disable the feature if ansible-lint is not found
  • yamllint (optional)

If you also install yamllint, ansible-lint will detect it and incorporate into the linting process. Any findings reported by yamllint will be exposed in coc.nvim as errors/warnings.

Bult-in install

coc-ansible allows you to create an extension-only "venv" and install ansible, ansible-lint and yamllint.

yamllint will be installed by setting ansible.builtin.isWithYamllint to true (default: false).

You can also specify the version of each tool. (setting: ansible.bultin.ansibleVersion, ansible.bultin.ansibleLintVersion, ansible.bultin.yamllintVersion)

The first time you use coc-ansible, if ansible, ansible-lint is not detected, you will be prompted to do a built-in installation.

You can also run the installation command manually.

:CocCommand ansible.builtin.installRequirementsTools
