Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing development environments.
Development environments managed by Vagrant can run on local virtualized platforms such as VirtualBox or VMware, in the cloud via AWS or OpenStack, or in containers such as with Docker or raw LXC.
Vagrant provides the framework and configuration format to create and manage complete portable development environments. These development environments can live on your computer or in the cloud, and are portable between Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
Package dependencies: Vagrant requires
curl to be available on
your system PATH to run successfully.
For the quick-start, we'll bring up a development machine on VirtualBox because it is free and works on all major platforms. Vagrant can, however, work with almost any system such as OpenStack, VMware, Docker, etc.
First, make sure your development machine has VirtualBox installed. After this, download and install the appropriate Vagrant package for your OS.
To build your first virtual environment:
vagrant init hashicorp/bionic64 vagrant up
Note: The above
vagrant up command will also trigger Vagrant to download the
bionic64 box via the specified URL. Vagrant only does this if it detects that
the box doesn't already exist on your system.
