*Rootbox is no longer maintained.*

Rootbox is a tool that lets you create and distribute “boxes”: isolated environments designed for building code thanks to the power of chroots and mounts.

Unlike full-blown containerization tools like Docker and rkt, Rootbox is intentionally non-secure. This allows it to be incredibly lightweight, ideally suited for creating portable, reproducible development environments.
