To create a new Ansile project:

mkdir -p new_project
cd new_project
# inventory and master playbook
touch production staging site.yml 
# folders
mkdir -p group_vars host_vars library filter_plugins

To create a role with all the folders (role is named common):

mkdir -p roles/common/{tasks,handlers,templates,files,vars,defaults,meta}
touch roles/common/{tasks,handlers,templates,files,vars,defaults,meta}/main.yml
