vagrant-apt_cache is no longer maintained. For additional features and Vagrant 1.1+ compatibility, consider using vagrant-cachier.

Vagrant apt-cache

Share a common package cache among all VM instances. This gem will share a directory from the host to the /var/cache/apt on guest VMs to avoid downloading already-downloaded packages when building VMs.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'vagrant-apt_cache'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install vagrant-apt_cache


No configuration is currently provided. This gem is autoloaded by Vagrant.
