Everyday, a Ruby developer in the Philippines has to put up with slow gem installs. I was introduced to the idea of using a droplet for development at our local Ruby meetup.
I wondered if it’s possible to use DO with Vagrant to support our existing development workflows. While searching Github, I came across one such plugin.
After upgrading my local Vagrant installation to 1.6.2, I immediately generated a new Vagrantfile. Afterwards, I began setting up a development box.
See how I did it here.
- setup an ansible playbook to install rvm
- mount a droplet’s filesystem using NFS
