Vagrant setup for Seajure hack nights.

As an attempt to get a reasonable development environment quickly for Seajure hacknights, I setup a shareable virtualbox via Vagrant. Let’s all play along!



Once Vagrant provisions your VM, use vagrant ssh to log in. Your VM will have a Jark swank session running, so you can immediately start Emacs and do M-x slime-connect to port 4005. You can start a new project with lein new myproject or pull down an existing project to hack on via git.


  • Emacs 24 (with starter kit 2 and relevant Clojure modes)
  • tmux (with better config)
  • Leiningen
  • Jark


A standard Ubuntu 10.04 install (YMMV for other distros/versions) doesn’t have the appropriate ruby setup and needs some additional apt-get-ing to install vagrant. Assuming only that VirtualBox is installed, the following additional steps need to be performed before you can run gem install vagrant:

  • Run sudo apt-get install rubygems1.8 ruby-dev libopenssl-ruby
  • Next do a sudo gem install rubygems-update and sudo /var/lib/gems/1.8/bin/update_rubygems to get the latest rubygems

At this point you should be able to do a gem install vagrant
