With the Fedora 22 release we started creating Vagrant boxes for our cloud images in order to make it easier to set up a local environment for development or testing. In the 22 release cycle we worked out quite a few kinks and we are again releasing libvirt and virtualbox Vagrant boxes for Fedora 23. We are also going a step farther this time and making it easier for users by having the Vagrant boxes indexed in Hashicorp's Atlas. Atlas is essentially an index of Vagrant boxes that makes it easy to distribute them (think of it like a Docker registry for VM images).
By indexing the Fedora boxes in Atlas users now have the option of using
vagrant software to download and add the boxes automatically rather than
the user having to go grab the boxes directly from the mirrors first (although this is
still an option).
In order to get started with the Fedora cloud base image just:
# vagrant init fedora/23-cloud-base && vagrant up
To get started with Fedora Atomic host:
# vagrant init fedora/23-atomic-host && vagrant up
The above commands will grab the latest indexed images in Atlas and start a VM without the user having to go download the image first. Hopefully this will make it easier for Fedora users to develop and test! If you haven't delved into Vagrant yet then you can get started by visiting the Vagrant page on the Fedora Developer Portal. Let us know on the Fedora cloud mailing list if you have any trouble.
