(Reviewed on 06 July 2018) "Indispensable Tool for Local Development"

What do you like best?

Provision a virtual machine mimicking your production environment in minutes. Or, should you need, easily integrate with third-party plugins and perform advanced customizations.

What do you dislike?

When compared to Docker, swapping out components within your stack is a bit tedious.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are plenty of tools out there to make provisioning a bit easier

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Vagrant to run our local development virtual machines since it uses less resources on our hosts than Docker.

Easy to manage a virtual machine and scriptigin that.

What do you dislike?

People is ignoring vagrant for docker and abandoning the support.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Check the vagrantfile to customize the settings of the environment

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Install and configure a VM ready to develop automatically.

(Reviewed on 10 January 2018) "Vagrant is awesome"

What do you like best?

This software is a marvel of modern computing. Never before has it been so easy to develop in multiple environments on just one pc or laptop. With a simple two word command, a virtual machine is created and launched. Vagrant goes out to the cloud and retrieves the chosen OS allowing for the developer to concentrate on the project rather than wasting extra time maintaining copies of development OSs and doing manual installations. This also makes it very easy to have the same development variables on multiple machines for multiple team members.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that it is not more widely used. I also dislike How technical and complicated it looks at first glance. Vagrant is actually very simple to grasp a decent understanding rather quickly. The average user can be up and be running with Vagrant with minimal effort contrary to what a quick overview might lead to sugest.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Vagrant allows us to set up the exact same development situation for multiple remote working team members.

What do you like best?

Vagrant makes creating Virtual Machines super easy. Vagrantfiles can be fully customized for any operating system and can integrate with provisioning software such as Chef and Ansible.

What do you dislike?

Slight learning curve but there is lots of examples and documentation

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it. You will enjoy how simple Vagrant makes things. waste less time setting up so that you can spend more time developing.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recreate customized virtual environments easily for anyone on the team to work on.

(Reviewed on 25 July 2017) "Why you need to virtualise"

What do you like best?

The ability to distribute a configured environment to a group of people for development, QA, or general consistency

What do you dislike?

The initial configuration takes a long time to get right, but once done right, it's perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it, I'd probably get started with something like PuPHPet or chef, to build your vagrantfile.

As soon as you pick it up from those services, look into building your own vagrant files as you'll get more flexibility out of them

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In most dev houses, you'll always have inconsistency issues between developer's local environments which, at one point or another which cause an issue. With Vagrant boxes, this issue is completely eliminated.

(Reviewed on 07 March 2017) "Dev envs made easy"

What do you like best?

I love that everything is stored in plain text, so you can share your provisioning file and use version control software like Git.

What do you dislike?

Repackaging boxes can be very challenging and I think it should be further improved.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Vagrant for setting up my development environment by modifying the Vagrantfile, which can later be shared with the other members of the team. That ensure that we all use the same, or at least very similar, machine configurations.

(Reviewed on 28 November 2016) "Vagrant leads me into the world of DevOps"

What do you like best?

I was a developer who doesn't know the concept of DevOps. Before using Vagrant, occasionally, I was annoyed by some linux configuration, by IDE setup, by repeat LAMP stack configuration, but I had the feeling that something was wrong: there should be a better way to do it.

Until starting using Vagrant and hashicorp's other tools, such as packer, I began to know another world: DevOps.

So,

the "everything should be automatic" pattern in my brain, was developed by Linux user experience + Vagrant( hashicorp)

What do you dislike?

I am currently satisfied by Vagrant and hashicor's other tools. They are good! Once you learn the "DevOps" pattern from these tools, you will be good to go for any "automatic" patterns.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a deveopler and use vagrant in both my work and my home projects.

(Reviewed on 31 October 2016) "Lather, rinse, repeat"

What do you like best?

Some of my favorite days are spent iterating machine configurations using Vagrant. I make a change, build the VM, test it out, and destroy the VM fearlessly. It's so much better than working on real production systems or even manually building and rebuilding VMs.

What do you dislike?

I have encountered some compatibility issues with ancient versions of Linux, but I was able to resolve them by stepping back a few versions of Vagrant. Given the combinatorial explosion of OSes, OS versions, virtualization tools, etc. it's a wonder there aren't more issues.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Updating and installing software on Linux servers. Vagrant gives me a sandbox to try out changes.

(Reviewed on 20 October 2016) "Quick, easy deployment of a VM"

What do you like best?

100% customizable. Easy to put into place. Lots of great recipes through google searches. Great community.

What do you dislike?

Can be processor and memory intensive. Make sure you have a beefy computer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dev environments are easily shared amongst many people in a single team. Help to eliminate the "Works for me" mentality.

(Reviewed on 18 October 2016) "Vagrant Makes Development Easier"

What do you like best?

It's awesome to be able to do my development locally with whatever configuration I need. I can shut it down when I'm not using it and switch between boxes quickly.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of moving pieces. Do have to decide if you're using shell scripts, puppet, ansible, chef or whatnot. I find it difficult to get it to work on local domains (http://project.app/) so I end up using a custom port which prevents me from running more than one at a time (using the same configuration).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's free so give it a shot. If you're building with PHP I'd recommend checking out https://puphpet.com/ or http://phansible.com/ which makes setting up your box easier.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Previously I did all of my development on a remote VPS using ExpanDrive to mount the remote SSH as a local drive. Over the years this has become more fragile and in many cases the latency has gotten to be too much for me. I love being able to have everything local.

Prior to working with the VPS/ExpanDrive workflow, I'd do local development with a local web server and database. That sucked as well because if I wasn't doing development it was still running. It also meant that all my apps needed to use the same stack and the same PHP versions.

Vagrant makes this easier because if I have a project that requires PHP 5.2 and another that I'm building with PHP 7 it's all good.
