With this vagrant you can create a virtual machine with all that is needed for Erlang, Scala and Javascript development using Emacs.


Setup ssh access

The virtual environment will authenticate use ssh-agent forwarding to your host machine.

ssh-add <my-super-secret-key>

You can verify the keys are loaded with

ssh-add -l

Once this is done, the virtual machine will not require the private keys, so you don't need to copy them around.

External repositories

Ubuntu 14.04

Install the latest Vagrant and VirtualBox. At the moment of writing this they were: Vagrant 1.5.1 and Virtualbox 4.3.10

Install the latest version of Ansible as well.

For ubuntu:

cd /tmp
sudo dpkg -i vagrant_1.5.1_x86_64.deb
sudo dpkg -i virtualbox-4.3_4.3.10-92957~Ubuntu~precise_amd64.deb

sudo apt-get install apt-add-repository
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:rquillo/ansible
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ansible

Workaround to make ansible ssh work

Create the entry in ~/.ssh/config so that ansible can connect to vm

StrictHostKeyChecking no

Create and use the Vagrant environment

Create the virtual machine

vagrant up

This can take quite some time the first time you run it as the virtual environment needs to be provisioned.

Now that the machine is running you can ssh into it

vagrant ssh

If you want to stop the virtual machine (to release memory, for example) run

vagrant suspend

You can restart it again with vagrant up without reprovisioning it, if you want to get rid of the virtual environment altogether run

vagrant destroy

The next time you run vagrant up it will generate a new environment from scratch.
