Vagrant Parallels Provider

Gem Version Build Status Code Climate

This is a plugin for Vagrant, allowing to manage Parallels Desktop virtual machines on OS X hosts.


Note: Only Pro and Business editions of Parallels Desktop for Mac are compatible with this Vagrant provider. Standard edition doesn't have a command line functionality and can not be used with Vagrant.


The Parallels provider supports all basic Vagrant features, including shared folders, private and public networks, forwarded ports and so on.

If you're just getting started with Vagrant, it is highly recommended that you read the official Vagrant documentation first.


First, make sure that you have Parallels Desktop for Mac and Vagrant properly installed. We recommend that you use the latest versions of these products.

Since the Parallels provider is a Vagrant plugin, installing it is easy:

$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-parallels
