Multipass is a tool to launch and manage VMs on Windows, Mac and Linux that simulates a cloud environment with support for cloud-init. Get Ubuntu on-demand with clean integration to your IDE and version control on your native platform.
Launch an instance (by default you get the current Ubuntu LTS)
multipass launch --name foo
Run commands in that instance, try running bash (logout or ctrl-d to quit)
multipass exec foo -- lsb_release -a
Pass a cloud-init metadata file to an instance on launch
multipass launch -n bar --cloud-init cloud-config.yaml
