Getting Started

The following instructions will automatically download and provision a virtual machine for you to begin hacking on Blimp Boards with Vagrant.

  1. Install Git: http://git-scm.com/downloads (or GitHub for Windows if you want a GUI)
  2. Install VirtualBox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
  3. Install Vagrant: http://www.vagrantup.com (We require Vagrant 1.1.2+ or later)
  4. Open a terminal

Using Vagrant for development

When you're ready to start working, boot the VM:

vagrant up

Note: The first time you do this, it will take a while as it downloads the VM image and installs it.

Once the machine has booted up, you can shell into it by typing:

vagrant ssh

Browse http://localhost:8888/ to load the application.

Shutting down the VM

vagrant halt
