    macOS and Linux VMs on Apple Silicon to use in CI and other automations

    I've already created a feature request to support Linux. Please comment on the issue with your use case so we can gather more information to design Linux support to fit all use cases.

    OCI Artifacts

    One of the most interesting/unique features is the integration with OCI-compatible container registries. Tart can pull/push virtual machines from/to a registry. This feature was inspired by OCI Artifacts initiative.

  • SonarQube

  • packer-plugin-tart

    Packer builder for Tart VMs

    There is Packer Tart Plugin which helps automate VM creation and can optimize VM's disk.

  • Vagrant

    Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing development environments.

    Vagrant itself use virtualizations like Tart to spin up environments. We've already got feedback that people would love Tart integration for Vagrant. There is potentially huge performance improvements given Tart is using Apple's own `Virtualization.Framework which is optimized for Apple Silicon. Please follow this feature request for updates.
