How to install Homebrew with Ansible
I’ve tried shell, command and https://github.com/geerlingguy/ansible-role-homebrew but here is the answer. File structure.
roles/brew ├── files │ └── install-homebrew.sh └── tasks └── main.yml
--- - name: Check if Homebrew is already installed stat: path: /usr/local/bin/brew register: b - name: Install Homebrew script: install-homebrew.sh when: not b.stat.exists
#!/bin/bash yes | /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Problems with other ways to do it
curl command prompts user something so we need to add
yes to pass y
This means we cannot use Ansible command module, because pipe is not supported.
Shell module seems to run the command properly, but for some reason it does not
exit ever (perhaps because
yes runs forever).
