Gem Version Gitter chat

A Vagrant plugin that helps you reduce the amount of coffee you drink while waiting for boxes to be provisioned by sharing a common package cache among similar VM instances. Kinda like vagrant-apt_cache or this magical snippet but targeting multiple package managers and Linux distros.


Make sure you have Vagrant 1.4+ and run:

vagrant plugin install vagrant-cachier

Quick start

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  config.vm.box = 'your-box'
  if Vagrant.has_plugin?("vagrant-cachier")
    # Configure cached packages to be shared between instances of the same base box.
    # More info on http://fgrehm.viewdocs.io/vagrant-cachier/usage
    config.cache.scope = :box

    # OPTIONAL: If you are using VirtualBox, you might want to use that to enable
    # NFS for shared folders. This is also very useful for vagrant-libvirt if you
    # want bi-directional sync
    config.cache.synced_folder_opts = {
      type: :nfs,
      # The nolock option can be useful for an NFSv3 client that wants to avoid the
      # NLM sideband protocol. Without this option, apt-get might hang if it tries
      # to lock files needed for /var/cache/* operations. All of this can be avoided
      # by using NFSv4 everywhere. Please note that the tcp option is not the default.
      mount_options: ['rw', 'vers=3', 'tcp', 'nolock']
    # For more information please check http://docs.vagrantup.com/v2/synced-folders/basic_usage.html

For more information please read the documentation available at http://fgrehm.viewdocs.io/vagrant-cachier.
