Vagrant is a tool for easily creating shareable development environments for your team. It consists of a configuration file with instructions for creating a virtual machine. This virtual machine should contain everything a developer might need to work in a specific project. This configuration file is then committed to the repo and shared with the team. All developers work inside this machine, preventing problems or inconsistencies setting up their development environment.
Now-a-days the same thing can be achieved using Docker(and it is my preferred way of doing it), but the company where I work has some projects using Vagrant, so I decided to learn about it.
The installation is pretty straight forward. Just head to Vagrant’s downloads page, get the binary for your OS and install it.
