Packer scripts to build a Vagrant-compatible boot2docker box.
This repository contains the scripts necessary to create a Vagrant-compatible boot2docker box. If you work solely with Docker, this box lets you keep your Vagrant workflow and work in the most minimal Docker environment possible.
The box is available on Vagrant Cloud, making it very easy to use it:
$ vagrant init mitchellh/boot2docker $ vagrant up
If you want the actual box file, you can download it from the releases page.
On OS X, to use the docker client, follow the directions here: http://docs.docker.io/installation/mac/#docker-os-x-client (you'll need to export
DOCKER_HOST). You should then be able to to run
docker versionfrom the host.
If you want to recreate the box, rather than using the binary, then you can use the scripts and Packer template within this repository to do so in seconds.
To build the box, first install the following prerequisites:
Then follow the steps:
$ vagrant up ... $ vagrant ssh -c 'cd /vagrant && sudo ./build-iso.sh' ... $ vagrant destroy --force ... $ packer build template.json ...
You can restrict only VirtualBox, VMware, or Parallels by specifying the
-onlyflag to Packer.
