Setting up your environment

Complete the following steps to set up a local environment for your first Execution Environment:

  1. Ensure the following packages are installed on your system:

    • podman or docker
    • python3

    If you use the DNF package manager, install these prerequisites as follows:

    sudo dnf install -y podman python3
  2. Install ansible-navigator:

    pip3 install ansible-navigator

    Installing ansible-navigator lets you run EEs on the command line. It includes the ansible-builder package to build EEs.

    If you want to build EEs without testing, install only ansible-builder:

    pip3 install ansible-builder
  3. Verify your environment with the following commands:

    ansible-navigator --version
    ansible-builder --version
