Vagrant (virtualization manager)

#1 Post by Midas » Sun Apr 04, 2021 6:29 am

This is a little out of my depth but, with all the recent talk of virtualization, I think Vagrant is an avenue of exploration we should at least point out here at TPFC.

Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing development environments.
Vagrant is a tool for building and managing virtual machine environments in a single workflow. With an easy-to-use workflow and focus on automation, Vagrant lowers development environment setup time, increases production parity, and makes the "works on my machine" excuse a relic of the past.

Vagrant doesn't appear to be natively portable, but there are many write-ups on how simple it is to achieve this -- I'll just note a couple:

Latest Vagrant release for Windows (currently v2.2.15) can be downloaded from https://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.
