Node.js cli helper for VirtualBox management


vibox is a simple manager for your VirtualBoxes' VMs.

In facts, it's just a wrapper over VBoxManage, but simplier and with completion (if you enable it).

Install the module with: npm install vibox

To take the benefits of completion, add the following line to your .profile, or .bash_rc, or whatever : which vibox > /dev/null && . "$( vibox --initpath )"

vibox [options] [command]

Commands:

    list [options]                  list VMs
    show [options] <uid|name>       show information about specific VM
    start [options] <uid|name>      start VM
    headless <uid|name>             start VM headlessly (no GUI)
    stop [options] <uid|name>       stop VM (if ACPI support is enabled)
    control <uid|name> <action>     control VM (start|headless|pause|resume|stop|reset|poweroff)

Options:

    -h, --help     output usage information
    -V, --version  output the version number

v0.0.3 (09/05/13): Add headless command & completions for control subcommands

However it's functionnal, there still some work to do : error handlers, some optimization.

In the future, i'll probably add support to more commands of VBoxManage.
