Prerequisites

Playbooks rely on Terraform, the stateful infrastructure-as-a-code software tool. It allows you to modify and recreate single and multiple resources depending on your needs.

This version of playbooks supports the multi-hosts deployment, which means that test BlockScout instances can be built on remote machines. In that case, you will need to have the Ansible, installed on jumpbox (controller) and all the prerequisites described below, installed on runners.
