I’ve been putting off some look and feel updates to my blog for a while; Mainly, because I’m too time constrained (and/or lazy) to set up a development environment to mess around with.
I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Vagrant lately, but didn’t get the gist of it. So, I buckled down a little and figure it out. Its another layer on top of virtual machines that helps scaffold up development environments using the tools that DevOps use scale out production environments.
With a little bit of googling, I found a vagrant box for WordPress. So, I installed vagrant (simple download and package install), grabbing the vagrant box with git clone, and ran ‘vagrant up’ a few minutes later, I had a freshly minted virtual box with the latest WordPress running. Nice.
Now, hopefully I’ll find some more time to actually work on those look and feel changes.
