Description
The intention for LocalChat is that it should be (relatively) easy to spin up a random VM instance (on AWS, or Digital Ocean or wherever), deploy LocalChat, have a natter, and then terminate the instance.

To achieve that end, having a playbook to automate installation would likely be quite valuable. Not only does it speed up the deployment (vs manual) but it should reduce the number of mistakes that might be made whilst setting up.

Depending on the ease of adding them, it may be worth considering the following optional features too

- Also deploy Tor and configure a Hidden Service for user's to SSH in via (not on port 22!)
- Self-destruct (i.e. remove) the LocalChat installation after a given time

Commit Message: LOC-18 Ansible playbook build

Very early stages of the playbook, all we currently do for the server role is install deps and create a unit file

Commit Message: LOC-18 Deploy server with ansible

It could do with some tidying and some conditionals, but it's now possible to deploy the server with the ansible playbook.
