Vagrant Molecule Plugin :: run molecule tests using Vagrant

Project description

PyPI Package Python Black Code Style Ansible Code of Conduct Ansible mailing lists Repository License

Molecule Vagrant is designed to allow use of Vagrant for provisioning of test resources.

Supported Platforms

This driver relies on vagrant command line which is known to be problematic to install on several platforms. We do our best to perform CI/CD testing on multiple platforms but some are disabled due to known bugs.

  • ✅ MacOS with VirtualBox - GitHub Actions

  • ✅ Fedora 32 with libvirt - Zuul

  • ✅ Ubuntu Bionic (18.04) with libvirt - Zuul

  • ❌ CentOS 8 with libvirt - Zuul DISABLED due to 1127 and 11020

Please do not file bugs for unsupported platforms. You are welcomed to create PRs that fix untested platform, as long they do not break existing ones.


To use this plugin, you’ll need to set the driver and platform variables in your molecule.yml. Here’s a simple example using the fedora/32-cloud-base box:

  name: vagrant

  - name: instance
    box: fedora/32-cloud-base
    memory: 512
    cpus: 1

Here’s a full example with the libvirt provider:

  name: vagrant
    # Can be any supported provider (VBox, Parallels, libvirt, etc)
    name: libvirt

  - name: instance
    # List of dictionaries mapped to ``
      # `network_name` is the required identifier, all other keys map to
      # arguments.
      - network_name: forwarded_port
        guest: 80
        host: 8080
    # List of raw Vagrant `config` options
      - 'vagrant.plugins = ["vagrant-libvirt"]'
    # Dictionary of `config` options. Note that string values need to be
    # explicitly enclosed in quotes.
      ssh.keep_alive: yes
      ssh.remote_user: "'vagrant'"
    box: fedora/32-cloud-base
    box_version: 32.20200422.0
    memory: 512
    cpus: 1
    # Dictionary of options passed to the provider
      video_type: "'vga'"
    # List of raw provider options
      - "cpuset = '1-4,^3,6'"
    provision: no
