Hi everyone, I’m working on a set of terraform modules for running instances in a uniform way across multiple clouds. I plan on tying these together with Terraform CDK with a high-level interface. So a user can simply ask for “N instances, with XYZ firewall rules, on network/region A, on cloud account B”. I haven’t made the repo public yet but I’d love to get another pair of eyes on the code base if anyone is interested.

It’s like a terraform-based alternative to http://cloudbridge.cloudve.org/en/latest/

Does anyone use mac/windows and use vagrant with Ubuntu desktop or pop_OS for development fulltime (fullscreen)?

Dual boot is such a pain, but always feels snappy and responsive. Any desktop experience in VM has always felt subpar to me. Would like to know if anyone has near native feel while working in a local VM. I use devcontainers mostly, but wondering if there’s any “tweaks” beyond enable 3d acceleration that make things feel more bare metal

i used to use a vagrant vm with Ubuntu + xfce and it worked for a while. my client ribbed me about not using a mac so i ended up switching when i found a deal

i used it in the last 12 months and used the virtual box seamless mode

if you want to go the vagrant route, try the above one as a base and customize it. it should just work

the new way to go is to use nixos. i haven’t tried it yet. it’s something i want to look into this year

I like a good virtual machine but found Vagrant running Virtualbox WAY too slow. But VMware Fusion VMs run perfectly normally - I just can’t get the appropriate Vagrant plugins to use it properly.

+1 for VMWare, their Player is free for non-commercial use.

If you’re running multiple VMs to simulate clusters I recommend linux containers. I use LXD with terraform: https://github.com/terraform-lxd/terraform-provider-lxd

I’m on mac. I’m asking about the desktop experience. I prefer devcontainers. However, if I want to use Ubuntu or Pop_OS! as a desktop and full screen it, I feel like I’m always very aware it’s a vm with things not feeling as snappy as native. It’s obvious enough it bothers me (even with 3d acceleration in vmware_fusion pro I have).

Is this normal, and have to accept it, or are there ways to get a native responsiveness in ubuntu/pop in full screen in a VM hosted on mac/windows?

Yes containers are awesome. WSL2 is awesome. I’m asking mostly for desktop/ui environment alternatives to the native host.

If it was during office hours there should be a link in the #office-hours channel from that day - they post usually post all links to stuff they share.

Might need to use https://archive.sweetops.com/ to find it if the channel history doesn’t go back that far.

Oh, yes! That one was a lot of fun that repo is here (I might need to blow the dust off of it) and happy to chat more about that if ever you’d like!
