Branches / Versions

In general you should not worry about what branch you're on. The bootstrap script will do this for you. That said knowledge is power so here's a summary of the branches in this repo:

  • release-1.5 - Stable, Box 1.5 (Debian 9), Jan 1, 2018 to ...
  • release-1.4 - Legacy, Box 1.4.5 (Debian 8), Dec 31, 2016 to Dec 31, 2017
  • master - Current bleeding edge mess, much pain here padawan

Windows Host

Minimum requirements

  • Virtualization enabled cpu (Check your BIOS if virtualbox fails to boot box)
  • 64 Bit Host
  • 2 Host Cores
  • 6 Gigs Host Ram
  • Dynamically sized 40G HD (Approx 15G on first boot) (Usually $HOME/ZonamaDev)
  • 2.5Gb in your $HOME directory for base box image (On windows this is usually C:\ )
  • Guest must be configured for at least 2Gb Ram, 128Mb Video Memory and 2 Cores

Fast Start



Launch Git Bash: Start -> Programs -> Git Bash or Right click in desired directory -> Git Bash


curl -Lk | bash

Watch for instructions.

Hard way


git clone -b release-1.5
cd ZonamaDev/fasttrack

Watch for instructions.

Linux Host

Linux mint 17.3 / Ubuntu 14.04

First install git, curl, and zlib1g-dev via

sudo apt-get install git curl zlib1g-dev

Next install Vagrant and VirtualBox through their websites:

Choose linux version (use 14.04 ubuntu as Linux Mint is based on 14.04)

Download the debian package for vagrant. (The versions in the apt-get repos are older, and unsupported for ZonamaDev)

Install downloaded packages:

sudo dpkg -i <pathtofile>/<nameoffile>


curl -Lk | bash

Watch for error messages, and resolve any unmet dependancy problems. Each distro of linux has different versions: For example, on Debian Testing (Stretch) install should be able to do apt-get virtualbox and vagrant.


The system should update on reboot, please reboot the vm:

  • via the applications menu "Loggout -> Restart"
  • via host control: vagrant reload
  • via terminal: sudo init 6

Advanced Featues


To uninstall and re-install fresh on the host system type:

curl -Lk | bash -s destroy


To uninstall on the host system type:

curl -Lk | bash -s uninstall


As an example to install release-1.5 before it becomes mainline:

curl -Lk | bash -s release 1.5


As an example to QA a new branch called "feature-lotto-numbers-1":

curl -Lk | bash -s branch feature-lotto-numbers-1

Local config for core and ram

On the host (usually Windows or OSX) in the ~/ZonamdaDev/fasttrack directory you can create a simple YAML file that sets cores and/or ram:

Example config.yml:

cores: 8
ram: 8192

The config.yml is ignored in .gitignore so you can "set it and forget it".

You can also setup a "bridged" network interface if you want the server to be directly on your LAN:

bridge: "auto"

Under windows you can do 'auto' and it usually picks the right interface on OSX you will need to choose the right
interface often "en0":

bridge: "en0"

The next time you do vagrant reload or vagrant up these settings will take effect.
