Nanobox automates the creation of isolated, repeatable environments for local and production applications. When developing locally, Nanobox provisions your app's infrastructure inside of a virtual machine (VM) and mounts your local codebase into the VM. Any changes made to your codebase are reflected inside the virtual environment.
Once code is built and tested locally, Nanobox provisions and deploys an identical infrastructure on a production platform.
How It Works
Nanobox uses Virtual Box and Docker to create virtual development environments on your local machine. App configuration is handled in the boxfile.yml, a small yaml config file used to provision and configure your apps' environments both locally and in production.
Nanobox allows you to stop configuring environments and just code. It guarantees that any project you start will work the same for anyone else collaborating on the project. When it's time to launch the project, you'll know that your production app will work, because it already works locally.
By using the Nanobox installer. (Recommended) .The installer includes all required dependencies (Virtual Box & Docker).
