Improving your efficiency as a developer, programmer, or coder is the purpose of this book. It takes you through the steps one by one to help you set up and implement virtual development environments with Vagrant.


  • Provision virtual machines using Puppet and Chef
  • Replicate multi-server environments locally
  • Set up a virtual LAMP development server

In Detail

Vagrant is a tool for building complete development environments. With an easy-to-use workflow and focus on automation, Vagrant lowers development environment setup time, increases development/production parity, and makes the "it works on my machine" excuse a thing of the past.

"Creating Development Environments with Vagrant" is a practical, hands-on guide that walks you through the functionality of Vagrant, Puppet, and Chef to create powerful and flexible virtual development environments. Create your own virtualization environments containing configurations for different projects so that you can simulate complicated environments that can be easily shared with colleagues to get your projects up and running quickly and effortlessly.

"Creating Development Environments with Vagrant" starts with an introduction to virtualization and the concepts behind it, why it’s useful, and an overview of the architecture of Vagrant. We will learn to install Vagrant and get to know its prerequisites. Covering provisioning scripts with Puppet and Chef, learning to use them independently as well as with Vagrant to create a powerful combination.

If you want to locally test your projects, juggle multiple projects running on different versions of software, easily share technology requirement changes with colleagues, and, most importantly, want to perform all these tasks efficiently, then this book is for you.

"Creating Development Environments with Vagrant" will take you from a virtualization novice to running all of your projects across your team in robust, isolated virtual development environments.

What you will learn from this book

  • Create Vagrant projects
  • Sync folders with your virtual development environment
  • Integrate your own machine with the virtual machine
  • Manage provisioning the server configuration with Puppet and Chef
  • Set up multiple virtual machines for a single project
  • Configure your virtual environment on your network
  • Build your own base box for Vagrant
  • Import and manage operating system images in Vagrant
  • Get to grips with good practices for developing projects on your local machine
  • Set up a simple LAMP server for a Vagrant project


This is a practical, hands-on guide that will help you set up and implement virtual development environments with Vagrant easily and effortlessly.

Who this book is written for

"Creating Development Environments with Vagrant" is for developers, programmers, and coders who want to maintain multiple projects within their own environment. It is also aimed at companies who are looking to deploy ready-to-go development solutions for new staff or even existing staff moving to new projects, and to enforce a consistent and portable virtual development environment that is easy to create and quick to set up.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good beginners book 4. November 2013
Von Patrik - Veröffentlicht auf
I've been using Vagrant for a couple of years now and this is a good book for beginners. The book goes through most of the things you need to know to get your environment up end running. The chapters about Chef and Puppet is good and will give you basic knowledge about the two provisioning tools.
Could have been nice with a chapter where you go deeper under the hood of Vagrant.

So if you're new to Vagrant I would recommend this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good introduction to Vagrant and its provisioners 25. Oktober 2013
Von Shawn Neal - Veröffentlicht auf
The book starts out slowly and carefully guiding you through the process of installing Vagrant and VirtualBox on your host workstation. Even if you've never touched a virtualization technology or heard of Vagrant you should be able to get up an running with this books guidance.

The book then provides a solid foundation of basic Vagrant commands and configuration that will be used on a daily basis. While the basics of Vagrant are fundamental to using Vagrant, the real power lies in using one of the built-in provisioners like Chef or Puppet.

Fortunately there is an entire chapter dedicated to each provisioner's basic usage before even attempting to add the extra complexity of Vagrant. This is a good thing, because each one of these tools is complex to get started with even at a simplistic level. Having a chapter dedicated to each also makes it easier to skip over an entire provisioner you're not interested in using.

If you're already familiar with Vagrant then this book is not going to help you, the target audience is clearly for the uninitiated. While the book explains Vagrant usage clearly, it fails to provide a concrete example of actually standing up a real development from top to bottom. It would be nice if the book stepped back from the technical aspects of Vagrant for a moment and provided some higher level guidance on how to better leverage Vagrant in your day to day development efforts.

Despite my desires for more abstract development workflow information the book is still a good resource for people who are new to Vagrant.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Basics are there but doesn't flow as well as 'Vagrant Up' 24. September 2013
Von El Juncal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased both Vagrant Up and this book - thinking that Vagrant Up would be a nice intro and this book would be a more advanced treatment. In some ways this is true as this book provides more detail about certain aspects of vagrant commands and certainly goes into more detail with respect to Puppet and Chef. However after having read both, I much prefer 'Vagrant Up' for its focus, writing style and relevance.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Ok for Vagrant beginners 14. November 2013
Von Alessandro Franceschi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I've mixed feelings about this book.
Reading it I haven't found any new information for me and my general impression is that it doesn't contain any valuable addition to what you can find on online documentation. Some parts are also somehow pedantic (as the step by step installation process of VirtualBox with pictures) and look more like fillers.
Still I have to recognize that this book may give value and be useful for who doesn't already know Vagrant, and that's probably the proper target for a similar book.
Get it if you want to learn about Vagrant and don't want to wander on online documentation.
If you are already using and comfortable with Vagrant you won't probably need it.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction 25. Oktober 2013
Von Sergey Storchay - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
"PHP 5 e-commerce Development" by Michael Peacock is one of the best books on PHP development that I read in my life. So I had very high expectations for this one. Well, my expectations were partially fulfilled.

This is a great book, unfortunately it was written not for me. So if you are already familiar with Vagrant, Puppet, Chef etc, you'll hardly get anything new from it. This is great introduction though. So if you want a quick dive in all that new stuff - you have the right book. You'll get the understanding of processes and will be able to work with Vagrant and most popular provisioner tools immediately. If you want to dive deeper you still will need some other book.

Even if I haven't learned anything new, I still see how this book can help me. Most of the time while evangelizing Vagrant among my fellow developers, I have to answer the same bunch of questions: What Vagrant is? Why do we need it? What's the difference between Puppet and Chef? So now instead I can just advise to read this book. And it will answer all that questions for me.
