The number of times I have run the command
vagrant down to stop a Vagrant machine is kind of ridiculous.
vagrant down makes sense as a counterpart to
vagrant up. Fortunately, we can create aliases!
In side your
~/.vagrant.d by default, create a file named
aliases. Inside that file add these lines:
# run `vagrant halt` for `vagrant down` down = halt
Done! No more raging when you get the output of
vagrant -h instead of a halted machine.
It’s also possible to create more advanced aliases.
# completely rebuild vagrant environment rebuild = !vagrant destroy -f && rm -rf .vagrant && vagrant up
