Just a bit over a year ago, then-10upper Jeremy Felt decided it was time to part ways with MAMP and make friendly with Vagrant. With a little help from fellow 10up senior engineers and systems experts, Varying Vagrant Vagrants was born, introducing a consistent and shareable approach to a WordPress development environment that better represented the real world production environments agencies like 10up build for.
With a 1.0 release, almost 800 commits, and nearly 40 contributors, it’s safe to say that Varying Vagrant Vagrants, or VVV as it’s become known, is an active and stable open source project. We’re so proud to have served as its founders and creators, and look forward to continuing to play a major role in its development and maintenance.
And now, it’s time to give VVV a community of its own. A new Varying Vagrant Vagrants organization on GitHub has been created, and ownership of the main VVV repository is being transferred there.
It’s a little bittersweet to see your project take on its own life, and this is no different. Yet, as strong advocates for open source and the rising tide it fosters, we’re even more excited to see one of our investments in open R&D take flight, and look forward to contributing to VVV, its community, and its future.
