title: "ARA is now packaged for Fedora !"
slug: ara-is-now-packaged-for-fedora
type: post

We are happy to announce that ARA has successfully been included in
[Fedora]( !

The latest version ([1.2.0](
is available for Fedora 30, Fedora 31 as well as Rawhide (Fedora 32).

You can find the source for the packaging files on [](
and the builds on [](

Contributions to improve the packaging are welcome !

## How to get started

If you are using Ansible from Fedora packages, you can start recording playbooks
with ARA easily:

# Install ARA's Ansible plugins and the API server dependencies
dnf install ara ara-server

# Configure Ansible to load the ARA callback plugin
export ANSIBLE_CALLBACK_PLUGINS=$(python3 -m ara.setup.callback_plugins)

# Run your playbooks as usual
ansible-playbook playbook.yml

# Start the embedded server
ara-manage runserver

# That's it !

You can see what it looks like in this small recording:

<script id="asciicast-HrXjFmvCygxaPbmVA0u6ZXAKL" src="" async></script>

If you'd like to see the built-in web interface looks like, you can find a live
demo on [](
