easy_install – Installs Python libraries¶
- Please note that the
easy_installmodule can only install Python libraries. Thus this module is not able to remove libraries. It is generally recommended to use the pip module which you can first install using easy_install.
- Also note that virtualenv must be installed on the remote host if the
virtualenvparameter is specified.
# Examples from Ansible Playbooks - easy_install: name: pip state: latest # Install Bottle into the specified virtualenv. - easy_install: name: bottle virtualenv: /webapps/myapp/venv
