A vagrant plugin to list active vagrant plugins.

Since vagrant 1.1 (which is not yet released) you need to specify which plugins you want to load. You may either use the global .vagrant.rc file or the projects Vagrantfile. This can get a bit confusing when having a lot of different configurations or projects.

This plugin aims to help you keeping track of which plugins are loaded in your project.


If you use the gem version of Vagrant, use:

$ gem install vagrant-plugins

otherwise, use:

$ vagrant gem install vagrant-plugins

And add this line to your .vagrantrc or Vagrantfile:

Vagrant.require_plugin 'vagrant-plugins'


$ vagrant plugins [-a|--all] [-H|--no-head] [-v|--verbose]
  • -a|--all : Display vagrant's builtin plugins as well.
  • -H|--no-head : Do not print descriptive column headings
  • -v|--verbose : Be verbose and display plugin features

The verbose flag will print a check map like this:

$ vagrant plugins -v
+- hosts
|+- guests
||+- provisioners
|||+- commands
||||+- action_hooks
|||||+- configs
||||||  name                description
