Vagrant Boxes on CentOS

  —Using Vagrant boxes effectively.

I’ve been working with Vagrant for sometime Experiments with Packer and Vagrant (Fini) now. One effective practice I’ve developed is the construction of Vagrant boxes for specific applications. A couple of examples: I’ve created Vagrant boxes for Review Board and Cpython.

I use the Cpython Vagrant box to build and examine Cpython source code. I’ve found that the ability to automate the construction of the box and their configuration to build Cpython is handy.

No rocket science here, just a pragmatic approach to constructing environments for specific purposes.

My Vagrant boxes are available on GitHub.
