v0.94.0 vermin works smoothly with Vagrant Boxes from Vagrant Cloud.
So, You can consider it as a modern CLI for Vagrant Boxes.
Vermin, in fact, provides some features that make it somewhat easier to work with, especially its ability to capture changes without reloading the VM.
To use any Vagrant Box, just prepend
vagrant/ to the box name:
$ vermin create vagrant/dictcp/android-x86
Vagrant uses the command
reloadto make changes to Vagrantfile take place. however, vermin doesn’t need to reload the VM for such changes as mounting a directory or doing a port forward.
