This guide describes how to get your dev machine up and running.
Please install the following software on our host system:
All of these run well on Mac OS, Linux and Windows. However, on Windows it may be a good idea to install a shell.
The Sevenval DevBox (fit14-devbox) is designed to be used as a service. Usually you do not have to enter the VM. Thus all (shell) commands in this tutorial are executed on the host machine, if not stated otherwise.
You find the setup code in our github.com repository https://github.com/sevenval/fit14-devbox.
In order to setup the VM, checkout the code on your host computer:
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/sevenval/fit14-devbox.git
For the installation of the FIT packages, you need to store your credentials in the
cd ~/fit14-devbox echo "fred:wilma" > credentials
fred with your username and
wilma with your password.
Next, we create the VirtualBox VM with Vagrant:
It can take a couple of minutes for the base image (CentOS 7) to download. Vagrant uses it to create and setup new VM, which will be automatically started headless. Then, the box is prepped with some useful tools including FIT 14.
fit14-devbox VBox is now ready for action. Open one of the links in your browser:
You should see a page that says Welcome to Sevenval FIT 14!
The site, that replies under this URL, is an example that comes with the setup code. You now have a working setup and some live example pages to explore.
