» Finding and Using Boxes

A primary use case of Vagrant Cloud by HashiCorp is to be able to easily find boxes you can use with Vagrant that contain the technologies you need for a Vagrant environment. We've made it extremely easy to do that:

  1. Go to the Discover page, and search for any box you want.

  2. Once you find a box, click its name to learn more about it.

  3. When you're ready to use it, copy the name, such as "hashicorp/precise64" and initialize your Vagrant project with vagrant init hashicorp/precise64. Or, if you already have a Vagrant project created, modify the Vagrantfile to use the box: config.vm.box = "hashicorp/precise64"
