Can I use Let’s Encrypt for local development SSL provider?

letsencrypt

#1

AnsibleUndefinedVariable: ‘letsencrypt_cert_ids’ is undefined
failed: [default] (item=danzerpress.com) => {“changed”: false, “item”: “danzerpress.com”}

ssl:
enabled: true
provider: letsencrypt

Can I not use letsencrypt on a local dev site?
