vm-init Files used to init the developer VM is a script for managing complex docker images. It provides an easy mechanism for creating and building docker images
Vagrantfile Developer VM configuration

Because we are using several base images with recurring tasks in the Dockerfile, we are using a script to include commands. This script is available under Feel free to use it in your own projects.


./ build-files         - This will build all dockerfiles
./ build-file [name]   - This will build the given dockerfile
./ build-images        - This will build all images
./ build-image [name]  - This will build the given image

Developer VM

To start and access the developer VM, use the following commands:

vagrant up
vagrant ssh

The repository root will be mounted under /vagrant
