vagrant-cachier, aka caffeine reducer

Fábio Rehm
Hey guys,

I've just released an experimental plugin to reduce boxes provisioning time: https://github.com/fgrehm/vagrant-cachier

A Vagrant plugin that helps you reduce the amount of coffee you drink while waiting for boxes to be provisioned by sharing a common package cache among similiar VM instances. Kinda like vagrant-apt_cache or this magical snippet but targetting multiple package managers and Linux distros.

I've done some pretty basic benchmarking that you can find over here: http://fabiorehm.com/blog/2013/05/24/stop-wasting-bandwidth-with-vagrant-cachier/#show_me_the_numbers

I hope you guys like it :-)
Cheers,

Nice! I've been doing something similar, but using shared folders and a bit of hacking on the Vagrantfile. This will significantly ease this for new Vagrantfiles!

I'm eager to try it. :)

Way to go, Fábio!
