Installing Ansible Runner

Ansible Runner requires Python >= 3.8 and is provided from several different locations depending on how you want to use it.

Using pip

To install the latest version from the Python Package Index:

$ pip install ansible-runner


To install from the latest Fedora sources:

$ dnf install python-ansible-runner


Add an ansible-runner repository:

$ apt-get update
$ echo 'deb <trusty|xenial|stretch> main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ansible.list

Add a key:

$ apt-key adv --keyserver --recv 3DD29021

Install the package:

$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install ansible-runner

From source

Check out the source code from github:

$ git clone git://

Or download from the releases page

Create a virtual environment using Python and activate it:

$ virtualenv env
$ source env/bin/activate

Then install:

$ cd ansible-runner
$ pip install -e .

Build the distribution

To produce both wheel and sdist:

make dist

To produce an installable wheel:

make wheel

To produce a distribution tarball:

make sdist

Building the base container image

Make sure the wheel distribution is built (see Build the distribution) and run:

make image

Building the RPM

The RPM build uses a container image to bootstrap the environment in order to produce the RPM. Make sure you have docker installed and proceed with:

make rpm
