Mazer is a a new command-line tool for managing Ansible content, and an open source project on GitHub at ansible/mazer.


Mazer is experimental, and currently only available for tech-preview. Use with lots of caution! It is not intended for use in production environments, nor is it currently intended to replace the ansible-galaxy command-line tool.

If you’re installing Ansible content in a production environment, or need assistance with Ansible, please visit the Ansible Project, or the Ansible docs site.


Before installing roles with Mazer, review Using Content in Playbooks. Mazer installs content different from the way ansible-galaxy does.

Mazer is most useful when used with a version of Ansible that understands mazer installed content. Currently that means the ‘mazer_role_loader’ branch of ansible. See Installing the companion branch of ansible for details.
