Installing the Environment

You will need to do the following:

Once you have Vagrant installed, run the following to install the right plugins:

$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-berkshelf --plugin-version 4.1.0
$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-omnibus --plugin-version 1.4.1

Now you are ready to start the VM. Make sure you don’t have anything running on ports 8000, 8443, 5984, or 3000 since vagrant will forward to these ports from the VM to give you access to the database, application server and rails dev server. Auto correction of ports is currently not enabled to avoid confusion. To start the VM, run:

$ vagrant up

This will take a while as it has to download and compile some stuff from source. While this is running you can modify your hosts file to include our fake domain to use for development. Add the following to your /etc/hosts file (may be a slightly different file on OSX):

You will need to access the site on this domain in your browser as the dummy SSL cert is set with this domain.

Once you have the VM fully provisioned, you can access the site at (or possibly a different port if Vagrant had a port collision when trying to assign port 8000 – check the Vagrant output upon the up command). It should automatically redirect you to the HTTPS protocol and port 8443. You can login with a preseeded admin account with credentials primero/primero.

Deploy keys

Since development will happen on forked repositories you will need to make sure that your personal repository has the right deploy key set. To do so, add the key from the node[:primero][:deploy_key] attribute in the dev-node.json file in this repo to your Bitbucket fork’s deploy key list. You add the key in Bitbucket by going into the repo admin and clicking on Deployment Keys. You might have to convert the \\n characters in the JSON string to real newlines first.
