Vagrant and Virtual Machine Creation

Hi, Romy here, making my first post to Open Data, sharing snippets of resources and information I come across as I venture into the fascinating world that is command line.

This was shared to me via IRC by Sam Kottler, whom you should google and be jealous.

Vagrant is a Ruby-based tool for rapidly building and distributing virtualized development environments.

Their website states, "By providing automated creation and provisioning of virtual machines using Oracle’s VirtualBox, Vagrant provides the tools to create and configure lightweight, reproducible, and portable virtual environments."

Take note, that one's first script can look like:

$ gem install vagrant
$ vagrant box add base
$ vagrant init
$ vagrant up

I hope you understand how this could really r0x0rz your s0x0rz, because to go about creating a virtual environment manually can take a few hours. Even Stefan Freudenberg at one point took an hour recently, to set up a virtual machine.
