I run a streamlined, sandboxed development environment to keep my system clean. It changes the way I structure projects – for the better!
I’ve cleared out my old Mac virtual machines and started with Varying Vagrant Vagrants anew. Here’s how!
Solving the two outstanding issues I had running VVV on Hyper-V: symlinks and dynamic hosts.
It took me a little trial and error to set up, but this weekend I managed to port my entire WordPress development stack not just to a new machine, but also to a new virtualization provider – Hyper-V.
I often brag about the fact that I’ve dumped heavy tools like XAMPP in favor of Vagrant. I’m quite proud of this accomplishment, and I urge every other developer I meet to look into Vagrant.
I use Vagrant for local development on WordPress. It made perfect sense to use it for local jQuery development, too. This weekend I put the finishing touches on a patch to add Vagrant support to the jQuery project – now you can leverage the power of this awesome tool as well!
