Vagrant plugin that exposes the
VBoxManage snapshot command.
As of Q4 2015, the vagrant snapshot command is provided by core Vagrant. Consider using it in preference to this plugin.
Ensure you have Vagrant 1.1+ installed, then run:
vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbox-snapshot
The following commands are added by this plugin:
vagrant snapshot take [vm-name] <SNAPSHOT_NAME> # take snapshot, labeled by NAME vagrant snapshot list [vm-name] # list snapshots vagrant snapshot back [vm-name] # restore last taken snapshot vagrant snapshot delete [vm-name] <SNAPSHOT_NAME> # delete specified snapshot vagrant snapshot go [vm-name] <SNAPSHOT_NAME> # restore specified snapshot
- Not compatible with Vagrant <1.1. If you need this, try another solution.
This plugin is primarily a port of vagrant-snap to Vagrant 1.1.
- supports 1.1
To develop on this plugin, do the following:
# get the repo, and then make a feature branch (REPLACE WITH YOUR FORK) git clone https://github.com/dergachev/vagrant-vbox-snapshot.git cd vagrant-vbox-snapshot git checkout -b MY-NEW-FEATURE # installs the vagrant gem, which is a dev dependency bundle install # hack on the plugin vim lib/vagrant-vbox-snapshot.rb # or any other file # test out your changes, in the context provided by the development vagrant gem, and the local Vagrantfile. bundle exec vagrant snapshot ... # commit, push, and do a pull-request
See DEVNOTES.md for the notes I compiled while developing this plugin.
