Simplifying local Ansible and Vagrant setup

In ansible, development, vagrant

To make context switching easier it’s always a good idea to simplify project specifics with simple bin scripts. They don’t need to do everything but they should at least be a good jump start to get the project going. Here’s a few simples ones that I’ve been using to get my local Ansible and Vagrant setup configured. I utilize Vagrant and Ansible for most of my local development environments.

Configuring Vagrant Virtual Machines With .env

In devops, vagrant

If you share your Vagrantfile and Vagrant provisioning files amongst team members for your local development environment it’s nice to be able to keep some of the options in your Vagrantfile flexible. Settings like memory usage, shared folder locations, and IP addresses. There’s a Vagrant plugin that allows you to do this and it’s really simple to setup.
