Vagrant allows users to create and configure lightweight, reproducible, and portable development environments.
Create a single file for your project to describe the type of machine you want, the software that needs to be installed, and the way you want to access the machine. Store this file with your project code.
Run a single command -- "vagrant up" -- and sit back as Vagrant puts together your complete development environment. Say goodbye to the "works on my machine" excuse as Vagrant creates identical development environments for everyone on your team.
- core: Provide a way to globally disable box update checks with the environment variable VAGRANT_BOX_UPDATE_CHECK_DISABLE. Setting this to any non-empty value will instruct Vagrant to not look for box updates when running vagrant up. Setting this environment variable has no effect on the vagrant box commands.
