Choosing a WordPress Vagrant Box

I want a Vagrant box on which to configure and develop WordPress. Here are some of the options. I wanted to decide on one. Here is how.

  • Box: name
  • Stars: on GitHub, # stars
  • Ctrb: on GitHub, # contributors
  • Rel: on GitHub, # releases
  • Cmts: on GitHub, # commits
  • Brn: on GitHub, # branches
  • For: Purpose of box
  • Rct: Gut reaction 1
    • +: Like
    • *: Pros and Cons
    • -: Dislike
  • Rt2: Gut reaction 2

Strategy:

  • Identify options
  • Classify them by stars and contributors
  • Get a gut reaction whether to dig deeper or not
  • Review them again
