"Vagrant is a tool for building and managing virtual machine environments in a single workflow." -

OS X Shell tweaks

brew tap homebrew/completions
brew install vagrant-completion

Then in .bash_profile:

if [ -f $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion ]; then
  . $(brew --prefix)/etc/bash_completion


vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest

Usage Examples

List which boxes you have stored locally

vagrant box List

Remove an old version of a vagrant box

vagrant box remove ubuntu/trusty64 --box-version 20151201.0.0

Script box updates

This may fail in some circumstances, I haven't tested it exhaustively.

vagrant box outdated --machine-readable --global |
  awk -F, '$4 == "warn" {print $5; exit 1}' |
  awk -F"'" '{print $2}' |
  xargs -n1 vagrant box update --box

Show status of all running Vagrant boxes, not just the one in the CWD
