Vagrant PluginBundler Plugin

Build Status

This is a Vagrant 1.2+ plugin which hooks in before vagrant up and vagrant reload and ensures that the required vagrant plugins as specified in your Vagrantfile are installed. Think of a minimalist Bundler for vagrant plugins.


Install using the standard Vagrant 1.1+ plugin installation method:

$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-plugin-bundler


After installing, you can specify the required plugin dependencies in your Vagrantfile like so:

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  # require the vagrant-omnibus plugin...
  config.plugin.depend 'vagrant-omnibus', '1.0.2'

  # ...because we use it here:
  config.omnibus.chef_version = "11.4.4"



Assuming the vagrant-omnibus plugin is not installed yet, vagrant up will now fail:

$ vagrant up
Bringing machine 'foo' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
Version 1.0.2 of vagrant-omnibus required. No version found.

=> run `vagrant plugin install vagrant-omnibus --plugin-version 1.0.2` to fix this

Once you installed the missing plugin via vagrant plugin install and thus the required plugin dependencies are met...

$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-omnibus --plugin-version 1.0.2
Installing the 'vagrant-omnibus --version '1.0.2'' plugin. This can take a few minutes...
Installed the plugin 'vagrant-omnibus (1.0.2)'! can run vagrant up again and it will continue as usual:

$ vagrant up
Bringing machine 'foo' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
[foo] Setting the name of the VM...
[foo] Clearing any previously set forwarded ports...
[foo] Fixed port collision for 22 => 2222. Now on port 2201.
[foo] Creating shared folders metadata...
[foo] Clearing any previously set network interfaces...
[foo] Preparing network interfaces based on configuration...
[foo] Forwarding ports...
[foo] -- 22 => 2201 (adapter 1)
[foo] Booting VM...

Block Syntax

If you have multiple dependencies, you can specify them line by line:

  # multiple plugin dependencies, one per line
  config.plugin.depend 'vagrant-omnibus', '1.0.2'
  config.plugin.depend 'vagrant-cachier', '0.1.0'
  config.plugin.depend 'vagrant-aws', '0.2.2'

But it reads better if you use the block syntax:

  # multiple plugin dependencies in a block
  config.plugin.deps do
    depend 'vagrant-omnibus', '1.0.2'
    depend 'vagrant-cachier', '0.1.0'
    depend 'vagrant-aws', '0.2.2'
