A practical guide to Vagrant
As a very practical guide, this book will cover Vagrant from the requirements and installation to
slightly complex tasks, such as running multiple VMs and deploying “real” servers. It will walk
you through the most used Vagrant provisioners – Puppet, Chef and Ansible – showing their main
characteristics and a quick guide to get you started.
This book will also cover some important pro tips to create your Vagrant projects; and finally, a
collection of recipes for common provisioner tasks, such as installing packages, using templates,
running commands etc.
Vagrant Cookbook is updated to cover the most important new features from Vagrant 1.5. It targets
beginner to intermediate users, also serving as a quick reference for provisioners (Ansible, Puppet
and Chef) and how to improve your current Vagrant setups.
