[Ansible] – Understanding string syntax

A string can be defined without and with quotes as the following examples

here all is a string

'my string definition'

"it is another string definition"

The character (|) means multi-line strings, following an example.

lines: |
  text line 1
  text line 2
  text line 3

The character (>) can be used to concatenate strings, following an example.

my_text: >
    Here is
    my very long,
    long, long, long
    sentence.
