Vagrant is a free and open source project. The vision of the project is to create a tool to transparently manage all the complex parts of modern development within a virtual environment without affecting the everyday workflow of the developer too much.
Vagrant was started on January 21, 2010 by
... [More] Mitchell Hashimoto and John Bender. Version 0.1.0 was released on March 7, 2010.
Today, Vagrant is considered stable and is used by many thousands of people worldwide. The vision of Vagrant is still unchanged, and continues to move towards an ambitious goal of moving all development into virtualized environments by making it easier to do so than not to. Additionally, work is ongoing to have Vagrant run identically on every major consumer OS platform (Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows). [Less]
