boxes

boxes takes the complexity out of building custom Vagrant boxes.

It's a command line tool which provides a set of templates and scripts to combine as you need. There are also a set of pre-build boxes which are regenerated regularly.

Installation & Requirements

[sudo] gem install boxes

boxes leans on Packer and VirtualBox, VMware Fusion or VMware Workstation for building boxes and these will need to available in your $PATH.

Usage

boxes is driven by the boxes command line tool, and works with artifacts inside it's own working directory. You need to specify a name for the build, a template to work with and the output provider. Something like so:

boxes build --name=trusty64-empty --template=ubuntu/trusty64 --provider=vmware

This will build a file called trusty64-empty.box in the current directory.

There's lots more to boxes than building simple empty Vagrant boxes like this, which can be see in the inline help.
