Trellis, Bedrock, and Sage development on Ubuntu Linux is supported by several libraries and software packages.
Git is available from the standard Ubuntu software repositories and may be installed with the following command:
$ sudo apt-get install git
Configure Git with your user information:
$ git config --global user.name "Your Name" $ git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
Install Composer from the standard Ubuntu software repositories:
$ sudo apt-get install composer
Creating an SSH key
Trellis and GitHub both use SSH keys to communicate securely without the need to type a username and password each time. Create your SSH keys:
$ ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -C "firstname.lastname@example.org"
For more details on generating SSH keys, see GitHub's excellent documentation.
Add your SSH key to the ssh-agent
~/.ssh/config file to automatically load keys into the ssh-agent and store passphrases in your keychain.
~/.ssh/config file and add the following lines:
Host * AddKeysToAgent yes UseKeychain yes IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_ed25519
Working with Sage
Sage relies on a few build tools to manage dependencies and build assets. Install these tools:
Install nvm from the instructions at https://github.com/creationix/nvm, or with the following command:
$ curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.34.0/install.sh | bash
Install the latest Node.js LTS release from nvm:
$ nvm install --lts
$ npm install --global yarn

- VirtualBox >= 4.3.10
- Vagrant >= 1.8.5
- Ansible >= 2.4
$ sudo apt-get install virtualbox
Download the latest version of Vagrant and install it with
