If you do not have either a dev or an AWS environment to deploy App Workbench on and prefer not to use a production environment host, then you can create an App Workbench environment on your local desktop using Vagrant and Virtual Box using the following procedure:
- Install the following versions of Vagrant and VirtualBox:
- Download the Vagrant file from https://s3.amazonaws.com/bluedata-catalog/boxes/Vagrantfile to the local development directory where you will be storing your App Workbench work
- Execute the Vagrantfile by executing the command $> vagrant up.
- Execute the command $> vagrant ssh.
Your local development directory is now mounted inside the VirtualBox virtual machine as /home/vagrant/host_folder. You are ready to start development.
