Starting the Environment:

  1. Clone Kong:

    $ git clone https://github.com/Mashape/kong
    
  2. Get the Vagrantfile:

    $ git clone https://github.com/Mashape/kong-vagrant
    $ cd kong-vagrant/
    
  3. Start Vagrant:

    $ KONG_PATH=/path/to/kong/clone/ vagrant up
    


    This will tell Vagrant to mount your local Kong repository under the guest's /kong folder.

    The startup process will install all the dependencies necessary for developing (including Postgres). The kong source code is mounted at /kong. The host ports 8000 and 8001 will be forwarded to the Vagrant box.

    Note: Check out the kong-vagrant repository for further details.
