Create reproducible and portable development environments that can be easily shared in your team.
HashiCorp hosts an index
of images that you can use with Vagrant. To download an image using
Vagrant you need to know the organization name as well as the individual
image name. In the case of Fedora we have the Fedora
organization and under that we have different boxes that can be used.
An example of one of those is the
fedora/28-cloud-base Vagrant box.
You can download this box with the following command:
$ vagrant box add fedora/28-cloud-base
This will ask you which provider you want to download the Vagrant box
for. You can choose
virtualbox based on which one of
those virtual machine technologies you are using.
After downloading this image you can then start up a machine with:
$ vagrant init fedora/28-cloud-base && vagrant up
NOTE you can skip the
vagrant box add command if you want to. The
vagrant up command will automatically consult Atlas for that named
box and download it if it exists.
If you want to update the Vagrant box image at a later time you can do so by issuing the following command:
vagrant box update --box fedora/28-cloud-base
