vagrant file for testing Jalview on Ubuntu

Just for fun try this:

Get Vagrant ( and Virtualbox (if you don’t have it already)

create a new directory - e.g.

mkdir ~/vagrant_box;

cd ~/vagrant_box

Save the attached file as Vagrantfile in that directory (no ending).

vagrant up

And get a drink whilst the Ubuntu box downloads, installs the gnome desktop, and clones the jalview git repository.

The provisioning script could definitely be improved… it’s my first attempt at doing this kind of thing with Vagrant.

Have fun!
