Provision Fantom for Vagrant

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Vagrant is an awesome tool for anyone who needs to develop or test against predictable OS configurations. If you’ve never played with – definitely check it out:

If you have a Linux box, the steps below will get Fantom up and running. These steps are for Debian/Ubnutu – so you may need to tweak for other distros.

1. Init your box

For this tutorial we’ll use the built-in Ubuntu box:

$ mkdir example
$ cd example
$ vagrant init hashicorp/precise32

2. Configure your Vagrantfile

Edit your Vagrantfile to add a provision step:

# -*- mode: ruby -*-
# vi: set ft=ruby :

# Vagrantfile API/syntax version. Don't touch unless you know what you're doing!

Vagrant.configure(VAGRANTFILE_API_VERSION) do |config| = "hashicorp/precise32"
  config.vm.provision :shell, path: ""

  # any other config you need


3. Add your script

Add a script in the same directory as your Vagrantfile:

#! /bin/bash

quiet() {
  # if provision is failing uncomment/comment to see full output
  "$@" &> /dev/null

# Unzip
echo "Install unzip..."
quiet apt-get install unzip

#   To install another version update 'JAVA_VER'
#   For example: JAVA_VER="7"
#   Note: if you use JDK7+ for compiling, then any compiled Fantom
#   pods will require a Java 7 or later runtime.  If you wish to target
#   Java 1.5 or 1.6 runtimes then you must use JDK 1.6 (JAVA_VER="6")
echo "Install JDK $JAVA_VER..."
echo "deb precise main" \
  >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo "deb-src precise main" \
  >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo "debconf shared/accepted-oracle-license-v1-1 select true" \
  | debconf-set-selections
echo "debconf shared/accepted-oracle-license-v1-1 seen true" \
  | debconf-set-selections
quiet apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys EEA14886
quiet apt-get update
quiet apt-get -y -f install oracle-java${JAVA_VER}-installer

# Fantom
#   To install a different version of Fantom update 'FAN_VER'
#   For example: FAN_VER="1.0.64'
echo "Installing Fantom ${FAN_VER}..."
wget -q$FAN_ZIP
unzip -q $FAN_ZIP -d /opt
mv /opt/fantom-$FAN_VER /opt/fantom
bash /opt/fantom/adm/unixsetup
echo "export PATH=$PATH:/opt/fantom/bin/" >> /etc/profile
rm -f $FAN_ZIP

4. Boot your box

$ vagrant up

==> default: Checking for guest additions in VM...
    default: The guest additions on this VM do not match the installed version of
    default: VirtualBox! In most cases this is fine, but in rare cases it can
    default: prevent things such as shared folders from working properly. If you see
    default: shared folder errors, please make sure the guest additions within the
    default: virtual machine match the version of VirtualBox you have installed on
    default: your host and reload your VM.
    default: Guest Additions Version: 4.2.0
    default: VirtualBox Version: 4.3
