vagrant-hosts is a plugin for Vagrant which allows a developer to automatically add or remove local hosts entries when bringing up or shutting down machines with vagrant.
NOTE: This plugin requires Vagrant 0.8 or later.
Installing / Getting Started
To use this plugin, first install Vagrant 0.8 or later and ensure that you have augeas installed. Next, install this gem:
gem install vagrant-hosts
To configure it put something along these lines into your Vagrantfile:
Vagrant::Config.run do |config| config.hosts.names = ["host.name", "another.name"] end
- Only works on Mac OS X (pre Lion) <- patches welcome!
- Lion seems to ignore the configuration stored there.
- Only supports single machine setups for now
- Cannot yet do indirect hostname getting, i.e. you will have to configure the hostname twice, once in the machine and another time in the vagrant file.
