This directory is the Vagrant project directory for Apache Thrift running on Centos 6.5. The Vagrantfile in this directory configures a Vagrant provisioned VM launched under VirtualBox. To use this project you must have a recent version of VirtualBox and Vagrant installed (in that order). To run the VM, open a shell, clone Apache Thrift, change to this directory and enter the Vagrant up command.
$ git clone https://github.com/apache/thrift $ cd thrift/contrib/vagrant/centos-6.5 $ vagrant up
This will download and launch the base box VM under VirtualBox and run the Apache Thrift provisioning script. This will take up to an hour depending on your hardware and network. Once complete you can login to the box with Vagrant ssh. The thrift source tree from your host os is mounted at /thrift.
$ vagrant ssh [vagrant@thrift ~]$ cd /thrift [vagrant@thrift thrift]$ compiler/cpp/thrift --version Thrift version 0.12.0
The provisioning script (inside the Vagrantfile) runs ./bootstrap.sh, ./configure, make and make check, but does not install thrift. To install thrift run “make install”.
The Vagrant base box used here is a minimal Centos 6.5 VirtualBox with 2GB RAM and 2 CPUs. For more Vagrant information: https://www.vagrantup.com. A summary of the base box preparation follows:
