Vagrant is free and open-source software for creating and configuring virtual development environments.[1] It can be considered a wrapper around virtualization software such as VirtualBox and configuration management software such as Chef, Salt and Puppet.

Since version 1.1, Vagrant is no longer tied to VirtualBox and also works with other virtualization software such as VMware, and supports server environments like Amazon EC2.[2] Although written in Ruby, it is usable in projects written in other programming languages such as PHP, Python, Java, C# and JavaScript.[3][4]

There is a plugin called vagrant-libvirt, which adds support for libvirt to Vagrant.[5]
