A "Docker Friendly" lightweight vagrant box

A stunning title I know - too many fancy words :)

Make a long story short if you need (like me) to run docker on a vm - consdering I can't run LXC on my mac, and you want a lightweight linux distro to test drive docker, there are two great resources I came across:

  1. Use the default vagrant box which shipps with docker's git repository (https://github.com/dotcloud/docker) - see Vagrantfile
  2. User boot2docker linux distro (https://github.com/steeve/boot2docker) - or even better use boot2docker image box complements of vagrant's author Mitchell Hashimoto. The vagrant box can beadded by running: 

    vagrant init boot2docker https://github.com/mitchellh/boot2docker-vagrant-box/releases/download/v0.3.0/boot2docker.box

Happy Docking :)
