Hi Derek, I also don't like Python (and I prefer Salt instead of Ansible), but Ansible is the wiser option /personal opinion/ . My reasons - API change , so your code will eventually will die. With Ansible - a lot of people use it and there is a high chance that some updates the Ansible module that will do the job even after the API changes.
Also, Ansible is declarative , while python will need more effort.
