The aim of this project is to automatically build OpenFOAM-variants from source using the tool Ansible. The script installs all the requirements before attempting to compile OpenFOAM

The full description can be found in this subproject in OpenFOAM-extend.

The only requirements for this script to work are Mercurial (for getting the sources) and Ansible. They should be installed through the

1 Basic Usage

First get the sources:

 
hg clone http://hg.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/ansibleFoamInstallation
cd ansibleFoamInstallation

Then a playbook with the requirements has to be edited. There is already an example playbook that builds three different Foam versions with cfMesh and swak4foam and also installs PyFoam :

 
sudo ansible-playbook exampleConfigs/allFoams.yml

On a supported Linux this makes sure that all the required packages are installed, it pulls the required sources and builds them (this may take a couple of hours)

To install only a single FOAM-distro (in this example OpenFOAM+ v1706) call

 
sudo ansible-playbook exampleConfigs/fullInstall.yml --extra-vars=distro=p1706
