Vagrant for Ephesoft: Get your instance running in 30 minutes...
With the release of the latest Ephesoft for Linux 126.96.36.199, I wanted to test it and what was inside... But, I was a bit lazy, and I know that some of my colleagues wanted to test it as well. So, I got the idea of creating a Vagrant script. I'm a newbie in Vagrant, but it's used for building complete development environments (https://www.vagrantup.com/).
I just had to create some bash scripts to install everything, and to have an Ephesoft linux installation in less than 20 minutes on my laptop. I tested those scripts on my MacOS and as well on Windows 8.1. First, you need some tools installed on your laptop including githtub, vagrant and finally a virtual box provider (I'm using virtualBox for example). When everything is installed, you just need to clone the Github repo that I created containing these scripts: https://github.com/bchevallereau/ephesoft-vagrant. When it's done, you just need to navigate to the newly created folder with a terminal, and type "vagrant up". By doing that, the vagrant script will download a CentOS 6.5 box, then launch the installation scripts.
In less than 20 minutes, you can enjoy the Ephesoft for Linux 188.8.131.52 and test it!! But, the download of Ephesoft can be quite long (820MB to download), so you may need some patience if your network is quite slow.
Let me know if you have any issues using it!
