Install Ansible on Mac

For my own tastes, the easiest way to install Ansible on my Mac is via Homebrew...

brew install ansible
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

For some additional paths, and other OS guides, check out this post...

Hope this helps someone out there find the answer slightly quicker if searching. πŸ˜„

What is Ansible you ask?

Ansible is a suite of software tools that enables infrastructure as code. It is open-source and the suite includes software provisioning, configuration management, and application deployment functionality.

I have a particularly bad experience with anything Python + Homebrew. I was using Ansible to keep Vagrant VMs up to date, and several developer machines stopped working because it wasn't able to link to the correct Python version. The officially recommended way to install Ansible on Mac is through pip.
