+# simplecv-vm
+
+A [Vagrant](http://www.vagrantup.com/) virtual machine for working with [SimpleCV](https://github.com/sightmachine/SimpleCV).
+
+## Why use a VM?
+
+SimpleCV's great, but sometimes a pain to install. This VM provides a useful way of getting it running regardless of your operating system.
+
+## Setting up the VM
+
+1. Install Vagrant
+2. Install Virtualbox
+3. Clone this repo: `git clone https://bitbucket.org/larsyencken/simplecv-vm`
+4. Start the VM: `cd simplecv-vm; vagrant up`
+5. Enable USB access for the machine in VirtualBox
+
+After you've done this, you should be able to fetch an image from your webcam:
+
+```shell
+python -c 'import SimpleCV; SimpleCV.Camera().getImage().save("example.jpg")'
+```
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
