We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

Module Description

Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing development environments.


What vagrant affects

  • vagrant package
  • vagrant boxes
  • vagrant plugins

Setup requirements

Since the module relies on some custom facts, you will need to setup pluginsync = true on both the master and client node's /etc/puppet/puppet.conf.

Beginning with vagrant

To begin using the vagrant module with default parameters:

include vagrant


Using the vagrant module consists predominantly in declaring classes that provide desired functionality and features.


Install the vagrant package. If the version parameter is not specified, the latest version will be installed.

class { 'vagrant':
  version => '1.5.4'


Add a vagrant box under the home directory of the specified user.

vagrant::box { 'hashicorp/precise64':
  box_provider => 'virtualbox',
  box_url      => undef,
  user         => 'vagrant'


Add a vagrant plugin under the home directory of the specified user.

vagrant::plugin { 'vagrant-lxc': user => 'vagrant' }


The user parameter of vagrant::box and vagrant::plugin is currently ignored on Windows systems (current user is assumed).
