How to pass parameter on 'vagrant up' and have it in the scope of Vagrantfile?

I'm looking for a way to pass parameter to Chef cookbook like:

$ vagrant up some_parameter


And then use
some_parameter
inside one of the Chef cookbooks.

Answer

You cannot pass any parameter to vagrant. The only way is to use environment variables

MY_VAR='my value' vagrant up

And use ENV['MY_VAR'] in recipe.
