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 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.
