Vagrant Drupal Development (VDD) is fully configured and ready to use development environment built with VirtualBox, Vagrant, Linux and Chef Solo provisioner. VDD is virtualized environment, so your base system will not be changed and remain clean after installation. You can create as many environments as you wish without any consequences.

The main goal of the project is to provide easy to use fully functional, highly customizable and extendable Linux based environment for Drupal development.

Setup is very simple, fast and can be performed on Windows, Linux or Mac platforms. It's simple to clone an existing environment to your Laptop or home computer and then keep it synchronized.

Note, VDD works great with Drupal 6, 7 and 8.
