Portable environments for effective development
How many times did you hear the excuse "works on my machine"? With Vagrant, this stays in the past. Your environments will be exactly the way you want them to be, targeting specific projects for different needs. As easy as cloning a repository and running "vagrant up".
This book covers from basic to advanced concepts on Vagrant, including important ProTips to improve your Vagrant projects and avoid common mistakes. The book was updated to cover the new features on Vagrant 1.5 and 1.6.
Vagrant Cookbook comes with quick guides to the 3 most used Vagrant provisioners: Puppet, Ansible and Chef. Following the guide, a practical example will show you how to provision a basic web server with Nginx + PHP5-FPM (PHP 5.5+). Choose the one you like best!
Recipes for most common tasks
The book also includes useful recipes for common tasks, writen in Ansible, Puppet and Chef.
The complete provisioner examples are available for free on GitHub.
Vagrant Cookbook targets beginner to intermediate users, also serving as a quick getting-started guide for Ansible, Puppet and Chef.
