Ansible can be installed on Mac OS many ways, but preferred way is using pip which is a Python package manager.

Install Pip

If pip isn’t already available on your system, run the following commands to install it:
curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py -o get-pip.py
sudo python3 get-pip.py
pip --version

Once pip is installed, install Ansible using pip.

Install Ansible using Pip
To install ansible globally, use following command
sudo pip install ansible
Once Ansible is installed, you can verify the version.

ansible --version

  1. Hi, every time I download the file for ansible it gives me an error:

    ERROR: Cannot uninstall 'pyparsing'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall

    1. Use the below command

      python3 -m pip install ansible

      This worked for me and installed ansible 2.10.3 on my Macbook pro 2019
