After taking a break from Rails to focus on a few other open source projects, I acquired an M1 MacBook and wanted to get rails-dev-box set up. However, VirtualBox doesn’t seem to run on arm64 hardware:
I created a lightweight Docker setup so I can work on Rails (https://github.com/alipman88/rails-docker). So have a few other contributors - see conversation here: https://github.com/rails/rails-dev-box/issues/179.
Out of curiosity, how are other Apple M1 users running rails-dev-box these days? If there’s no drag-and-drop replacement for VirtualBox, perhaps it’s worth supporting a Docker-based alternative.
