The revolutionary nature of Ansible comes from the fact that it's agentless, doesn't require a server, is lightweight, among other benefits. If you're wondering about all of the benefits that Ansible has to offer, I recommend you consult additional articles and books on the subject to grow your knowledge further.

In regards to not needing a server, having a Github repository doesn't constitute maintaining a server. Github's servers aren't maintained by the end-user. I only mentioned using your own Git server if you have one, because some individuals won't want to make their desktop configuration public, especially if the code contains any privileged information. But a server is not necessary. In fact, you could store all of this code on a flash drive and bypass having a Git repository if you wanted to go that far.

You seem to be missing the ending parenthesis on the following line:
