Start automating with Ansible

Get started with Ansible by creating an automation project, building an inventory, and creating a “Hello World” playbook.

  1. Install Ansible.

    pip install ansible
  2. Create a project folder on your filesystem.

    mkdir ansible_quickstart && cd ansible_quickstart

    Using a single directory structure makes it easier to add to source control as well as to reuse and share automation content.

Continue getting started with Ansible by building an inventory.
