Vagrant for developers

I have been using vagrant for a week now and I must say it’s a really nice tool. Vagrant for those who don’t know, it’s basically a virtual machine (based on VirtualBox but has also other options).

Why do i find it cool

– Fast to setup (You can choose one of the images from vagrantcloud and will install it in a few min)

– Have the same environment in different operating system (no matter if you start developing in linux and end up developing under windows, you can use the same setup)

– Share the same environment with other developers

– Share your http/ssh or other port in the internet (Vagrantcloud generates a url where you can send other people to your vm)

These are just some of the things I’ve been using and enjoyed with vagrant it has more features and it is getting better every time.
