  • The following syntax can be used to create a directory called ABC in the path /src using file-module.

      - name:ABC (Creates directory)
           path: /src/www
           state: directory
    - name: create project directory {{ common.proj_dir }}
    file: state=directory path={{ common.proj_dir }}

Now, to download a file using get_url-module, use the syntax given below:

- name: download files
  get_url: url={{ opencv.url }} dest={{ common.proj_dir }}/{{ opencv.file }}
