FiPy Docker Instance using Ansible

I created a repository that uses both Ansible and Docker to generate a Docker instance of FiPy. The main benefit of using Ansible in this situation is that it makes the developer generate a very clearly formatted file for the installation procedure. See, the Ansible YAML file. This file could be reused outside of a Docker instance for installation as well. A setup.bash is still required to bootstrap the Ansible installation in the event that Ansible isn’t installed. The installation procedure that’s in the Ansible YAML file could either be buried in the setup.bash or the Dockerfile. Ansible seems to do a nice job of creating a clean set of declarative statements for the installation procedure.
