Getting Started with Scotch Box: Vagrant for the Absolute Beginner

Downloading and Installing

In this lesson we'll walk through the two items required to run Scotch Box:

  1. Vagrant
  2. Virtual Box

Vagrant is a command-line tool that allows you to quickly build development environments (for us, local development environments) for our code to run from.

VirtualBox is virtualization software. All this means is Vagrant will "build" a bunch of virtual local dev environments for us on top of VirtualBox's software.
