Sharing Pre-Built VMs Via Vagrant Cloud

In passing, I noticed yesterday that Vagrant Cloud (docs) can be used to host and distribute public Vagrant base boxes. So I exported a box file from my V-REP’n’Jupyter VM:

vagrant package

uploaded it to Vagrant Cloud – ouseful/ou-robotics-test – and tweaked my Vagrantfile to use that copy as the base box:

config.vm.box = "ouseful/ou-robotics-test"

Now I’m thinking I should probably do the same for the TM351 VM, giving the hassle it seems to take trying to get the .box file hosted for download on an OU URL…
