Are you aware of any Ansible module written in Rust? I want to create one, and I hope there's one I can use as an example.
It looks like ansible modules just work with JSON written over STDIN/STDOUT. There probably won't be any tutorials or examples of implementing a module in Rust, but it shouldn't be too hard to read through their Python example and adapt it to Rust.
Some useful links:
std::io::stdin()- something that lets you read data from STDIN
serde- a framework for doing serialization and deserialization
serde_json::from_reader()- deserialize JSON data into some type that you define by reading from some reader (i.e.
serde_json::to_string()- for converting your output struct into JSON text
println!()for actually printing the output to STDOUT
