Installing ARA from latest release on PyPi

pip install [--user] ara

When installing ARA using --user, command line scripts will be installed inside ~/.local/bin folder which may not be in PATH. You may want to assure that this folder is in PATH or to use the alternative calling method pyhton -m ara which calls Ansible module directly.

The alternative calling method has the advantage that allows user to control which python interpreter would be used. For example you could install ARA in both python2 and python3 and call the one you want.
