LXDock is a wrapper around LXD that allows developers to orchestrate their development environments using a workflow similar to Vagrant.
Table of Contents
As of LXDock v0.4.1 the two creators of LXDock stopped using it, however the project has several new maintainers now.
See: issue #106
The Travis CI tests are working again as we have switched to the Snap version of LXD since the PPA is no longer maintained. This is great news as it has allowed a number of outstanding PR's to be merged, with more to come.
There is also a Vagrantfile included for running the tests locally.
The next release will be v0.5.0, but no release date has been set at this point.
More to come...
It's fast. LXDock is much much faster than a typical Vagrant + Virtualbox setup.
Multi-arch. Vagrant has been designed with Virtualbox and x86 in mind. Even if you use
alternative providers, you're going to have to jump through inelegant hoops to have your
Vagrantfile work on x86 and arm (for example) at the same time because the very concept of a
Vagrant box is arch-specific.
Simpler. When working with containers, much of the complexity of Vagrant becomes useless. Why
the need for special "vagrant-prepared" boxes when
lxc exec is available? It's much simpler to
use whatever images are provided directly by lxd. By removing the need to manage boxes,
suddenly becomes much simpler (a simple wrapper around lxd, really).
