      Pretty sure nearly everyone is going to wonder what Leeloo Dallas' multipass has to do with anything.

        Always nice to see Vagrant getting some new tricks.

          I use kcli[1][2] to manage VMs easily in my Fedora laptop using libvirt as backend, no need to install anything fancy.

          From the project site: "This tool is meant to interact with existing virtualization providers (libvirt, KubeVirt, oVirt, OpenStack, VMware vSphere, GCP and AWS) and to easily deploy and customize VMs from cloud images.".

          I've defined a profile.yml with the images I want to use and is as easy as:
          Code:
          kcli vm create myvm -p ubuntu1804
          kcli ssh myvm
          to start doing things on that VM. kcli uses regular cloud images provided by the distros, no need to use special Vagrant files or whatever, everything out of the box. It can be extended easily with networks, disks, and whatever is needed.

            I have only come to the comment section to search for this reference. To be honest i was not expecting this in the second comment.

              I'm having a little difficulty finding in the docs where it tells you how to install and run kcli on Windows and Mac OS.
