Vagrant is a huge pain in the ass (sometimes). Creating Vagrant boxes is more so (or so I thought).

A little bit of backstory. I started out using a tool called Packer to build machine images. Packer has a post processor for Vagrant to export a Vagrant box. The most frustrating part for me was having to start from nothing, instead of starting from a base image.

So then I came across a package command in the Vagrant documentation. This command allows you to export a running box. I got the wild idea to create a Vagrantfile to build my Vagrant box. Using an existing base and shell provisioning gave me exactly what I needed.

First, we set the the box to be "ubuntu/trusty". You can set this to whatever box you want. This alone eliminates most of the work Packer had to do.

config.vm.box = "ubuntu/trusty"

Next, we provision the box with whatever we want to install. In my case, it is IO (Node), and a few global node modules. There are about a dozen different provisioners available . We are going to use inline shell because it is the simplest.

config.vm.provision "shell", privileged: true, run: "once", inline: <<-SHELL # Install Node dependences sudo apt-get -qy install build-essential git wget curl sudo apt-get install -y python-software-properties python g++ make # Install Node curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_iojs_2.x | sudo bash - sudo apt-get install -y iojs # Remove node install dependencies sudo apt-get purge -y wget apt-transport-https software-properties-common python python-software-properties g++ make sudo apt-get autoremove -y sudo apt-get clean all # Install node modules sudo npm install -g pm2 grunt-cli SHELL

Now, we can create the machine by running vagrant up in the same directory as the Vagrantfile. If you aren't super familiar with Vagrant, I recommend you go through their getting started tutorials . After this finishes, we can run vagrant package --output whatevs.box . This command will package the machine we just created and provisioned into a Vagrant box.

You can upload that to a server, fax it, or whatever so the rest of you team can use it. We are currently storing these boxes in a Vagrant repository on our Artifactory server.

Here is my full Vagrantfile.

Vagrant.configure(2) do |config| config.vm.box = "ubuntu/trusty" config.vm.provision "shell", privileged: true, run: "once", inline: <<-SHELL sudo apt-get -qy install build-essential git wget curl sudo apt-get install -y python-software-properties python g++ make curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_iojs_2.x | sudo bash - sudo apt-get install -y iojs sudo apt-get purge -y wget apt-transport-https software-properties-common python python-software-properties g++ make sudo apt-get autoremove -y sudo apt-get clean all sudo npm install -g pm2 grunt-cli SHELL end
