You, of course, know, that for nearly the last two years, you have been downloading your Vagrant software from JFrog Bintray. But recently, Bintray has taken Vagrant support to a whole new level; it is now is a fully fledged Vagrant repository allowing you to distribute your public and private Vagrant boxes from Bintray! As for everything in Bintray, it’s simple and powerful:
Publishing Vagrant Boxes
1. Create a Vagrant repository (if you’re a new user it is likely that you already have a default Vagrant repository named “boxes”):
2. Click on “Set Me Up!” and copy/paste the REST command to upload the boxes:
Consuming Vagrant Boxes
Follow the “Downloading” section under “Set Me Up!” to configure box resolution for downloading Vagrant boxes, and be able to enjoy automatic box update during ‘vagrant up’ a box either by an explicit call to ‘vagrant box update’. That’s it, now you can benefit from all the power behind Bintray distribution: CDN, stats, logs, version notifications and more. So give it a try, put a box or two on JFrog Bintray today!
