Catching up with Vagrant

I’ve decided to level up my Vagrant game. A quite convenient tool indeed. In my case I wanted to spin up a few virtual machines on my laptop in order to simulate a prod environment.

I opted for Debian as the foundation for the VMs. I already know it well. Not too much fluff there, a quite stable base without too frequent kernel upgrades etc. It really gets out of the way. It uses systemd though, but to be honest I think I can live with that. At least for this use case.

I also took the opportunity to throw my Vagrantfile and related scripts up on GitHub in case anyone is curios and looking for inspiration 🙂

Happy hacking!
