Anupams-MacBook-Pro-2:bin anupamsri$ sudo pip install ansible  

The directory /Users/anupamsri/Library/Caches/pip/http or its parent directory is not owned by the current user and the cache has been disabled. Please check the permissions and owner of that directory. If executing pip with sudo, you may want sudo's -H flag.

=========================================

But when I check ansible version after it its not found. I also used sudo -H option but same result.

I don’t see .ansible file anywhere in system as well. Please help how to install this because I have tried brew install as well but no luck.

Anupams-MacBook-Pro-2:bin anupamsri$ ansible --version -bash: ansible: command not found

  • same result after installing with brew install ansible – Jack Robson May 23 '18 at 21:51
  • I am currently experiencing an issue with this as well. I tried to use pip to install ansible as yum was not letting me because of package dependencies that couldnt be pulled from the current repo. if you install it through pip it goes into the python 2.7 directory however it doesn't leave you with a /etc/ansible or ansible.cfg file. I'm working on a way to rectify this myself as I am hoping to start using ansible as well. – RickwhoPrograms Aug 7 '18 at 15:50

The most common cause of this, whether you're installing through pip or brew, is something not being in the PATH. The second answer here should offer some insight into this, if that is indeed the problem: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35898734/pip-installs-packages-successfully-but-executables-not-found-from-command-line/35899029
