VirtualBox control and documentation mechanism
drifter is a simplified control for virtualboxes that doesn’t require the vm to be packaged in a specific and ill documented format. Which allows use to create your environment with Virtualbox and then drift will take care of bringing them up and shutting them down.
If you are currently using Vagrant or straight-up virtualbox and you are happy, then there is nothing for you to see here. However, if you are annoyed with how difficult it is to convert a virtualbox vm into a vbox usable by Vagrant, then Drifter might just be for you.
In general, I like the idea of Vagrant, but I have specific problems with the following:
In a virtual environment..
$ hg clone ssh://email@example.com/dundeemt/drifter
$ pip install –editable .
$ drifter –help
Then you can edit the source and run drifter cmd
- bug fixes for removing a non-existent VM from Drifterfile
- updated documentation links
