Vermin is a smart, simple and powerful command line tool for Linux, Windows and macOS. It's designed for developers who want a fresh VM environment with a single command.
You can look to vermin as a modern CLI for Vagrant Boxes. It provides a Docker-like CLI to work and manage Vagrant Boxes (a.k.a Images)
It uses VirtualBox to run the VM. Vermin will fetch images on your behalf. Vermin can be used when you need an easy way to obtain a Linux environment up and running in minutes.
For example, If you want to try to install a Kafka cluster, and you need something more than just a docker container.
