This page shows how to use Vagrant together with GRASS GIS. The GRASS source code contains customized Vagrantfile. This highly simplifies the vagrant usage.

Dependecies:

apt-get install vagrant virtualbox

Note: '$' shows commands to be entered from local machine, '#' from vagrant's virtual machine

First of all we download GRASS source code from SVN:

$ svn checkout https://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass/trunk grass_trunk
$ cd grass_trunk

We start new vagrant instance by:

$ vagrant up

The command creates new vagrant virtual machines, downloads all dependecies, and compiles GRASS on this machine. You can connect to this machine by:

$ vagrant ssh

Enjoy!

Usage

The common usage may be:

1) create 'grassdata' directory in vagrant's home directory (enter commands from virtual machine):

# mkdir grassdata && cd grassdata

2) download sample data

# wget https://grass.osgeo.org/sampledata/north_carolina/nc_spm_08_grass7.tar.gz
# tar xzf nc_spm_08_grass7.tar.gz

Note: you can also copy your local data to the virtual machine by 'scp' command (enter commands from your local machine):

$ vagrant ssh-config > ssh-config
$ scp -r -F ssh-config /opt/grassdata/gismentors grass-gis-vagrant:grassdata

3) start GRASS from virtual machine

# grass71

To halt running virtual machine type:

vagrant halt
