Ansible is a radically simple IT automation system. It handles
configuration management, application deployment, cloud provisioning,
ad-hoc task execution, network automation, and multi-node orchestration.
Ansible makes complex
changes like zero-downtime rolling updates with load balancers easy. More
information on the Ansible [website].
* Have an extremely simple setup process with a minimal learning curve.
* Manage machines quickly and in parallel.
* Avoid custom-agents and additional open ports, be agentless by
leveraging the existing SSH daemon.
* Describe infrastructure in a language that is both machine and human
* Focus on security and easy auditability/review/rewriting of content.
* Manage new remote machines instantly, without bootstrapping any
* Allow module development in any dynamic language, not just Python.
* Be usable as non-root.
* Be the easiest IT automation system to use, ever.
You can install a released version of Ansible with pip or a package
manager. See our
[installation guide] for details on installing Ansible
on a variety of platforms.
Power users and developers can run the devel branch, which has the latest
features and fixes, directly. Although it is reasonably stable, you are
more likely to encounter
breaking changes when running the devel branch. We recommend getting
in the Ansible community if you want to run the devel branch.
* Read [Community
Information] for all
kinds of ways to contribute to and interact with the project,
including mailing list information and how to submit bug reports and
code to Ansible.
* Join a [Working Group
], an organized community devoted to a specific technology domain or
* Submit a proposed code update through a pull request to the devel
* Talk to us before making larger changes
to avoid duplicate efforts. This not only helps everyone
know what is going on, but it also helps save time and effort if we
some changes are needed.
* For a list of email lists, IRC channels and Working Groups, see the
