Is there a way to run Vagrant on a Raspberry Pi (B+)? I know that it would require a virtualization program.

No, not really. It's theoretically possible to emulate x86 code on an ARM machine using some form of virtualization, but the Raspberry Pi is not powerful enough to do it functionally.


As Dan suggests Docker is a better option because there is far less strain on the host. Resin.io has done a lot more work since our initial experiments. It's now even easier than the 4 simple steps. If you'd like to give it a try check out our getting started guide.

Disclaimer: I work for resin.io


Use docker instead, it appears there are some pretty decent instructions for pi-users here:

    Welcome to Raspberry Pi! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.
