Vagrant Alpine Linux Guest

Gem Version Build Status

This is a Vagrant plugin adding support for Alpine Linux guests.

NOTE: The vagrant-alpine plugin requires Vagrant 1.7+

This plugin is now part of Vagrant core as of Vagrant 2.2.6. It is recommended that you uninstall the vagrant-alpine plugin if you are using Vagrant 2.2.6 or above.


  • Detection
  • Set hostname
  • Configure networking DHCP or static
  • Halt/Shutdown the guest
  • RSync detection and installation
  • NFS client installation


  • v0.4.0 - updates for alpine 3.8+
  • v0.3.0 - update to fix defunct alpine apk repository in maier/alpine-3.3* boxes so that nfs client will install correctly.
  • v0.2.0 - add apk update and apk add --upgrade to nfs client install


$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-alpine


$ vagrant init maier/alpine-3.3.1-x86_64
$ vagrant up


$ vagrant init maier/alpine-3.2.3-x86_64
$ vagrant up


$ vagrant init maier/alpine-3.1.3-x86_64
$ vagrant up


The vagrant-alpine plugin does not offer any configuration options.


To work on the vagrant-alpine plugin, clone this repository, and use Bundler to get the dependencies:

$ gem install bundler -v '~> 1.7.0'
$ bundle install --path vendor/bundle

Once you have the dependencies, verify the unit tests pass with rake:

$ bundle exec rake

If those pass, you're ready to start developing. You can test the plugin without installing it into your Vagrant environment by creating a Vagrantfile in teh top level directory (it is gitignored). There is an example supplied in this repository. (cp Vagrantfile.example Vagrantfile and edit.)

Use bundler to execute Vagrant:

$ bundle exec vagrant up


Alpine Linux boxes for testing are available on Atlas. Packer templates for building the boxes are in this GitHub repository.

  1. (Atlas)[] Alpine 3.1.3 box v1.3.0 is for VirtualBox v5, use box v1.2.0 for VirtualBox v4. The v1.2.0 (built with VirtualBox v4) has intermittent kernel panic when used with VirtualBox v5 and CPUs are set to > 1.
  2. Alpine 3.2.3 box (built with VirtualBox v5) is available on (Atlas)[] now.

Using VAGRANT_LOG=info, Vagrant's --debug switch, and vb.gui = true were all very useful when originally developing this guest plugin.
