Command-Line Interface

Almost all interaction with Vagrant is done through the command-line interface.

The interface is available using the vagrant command, and comes installed with Vagrant automatically. The vagrant command in turn has many subcommands, such as vagrant up, vagrant destroy, etc.

If you run vagrant by itself, help will be displayed showing all available subcommands. In addition to this, you can run any Vagrant command with the -h flag to output help about that specific command. For example, try running vagrant init -h. The help will output a one sentence synopsis of what the command does as well as a list of all the flags the command accepts.

In depth documentation and use cases of various Vagrant commands is available by reading the appropriate sub-section available in the left navigational area of this site.

You may also wish to consult the documentation regarding the environmental variables that can be used to configure and control Vagrant in a global way.
