Description

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.

Vagrant

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.

Quick Start

Package dependencies: Vagrant requires bsdtar and 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.

Getting Started Guide

To learn how to build a fully functional development environment, follow the getting started guide.

Installing from Source

If you want the bleeding edge version of Vagrant, we try to keep main pretty stable and you're welcome to give it a shot. Please review the installation page here.

Contributing to Vagrant

Please take time to read the HashiCorp Community Guidelines and the Vagrant Contributing Guide.

Then you're good to go!
