[http://deepneural.blogspot.fr/p/welcome.html Configuration files] that cause Vagrant to automatically download and configure an Octave 4.0.2 server VM under OS X including 10.10 Yosemite and 10.11 El Capitan. The install process pulls down Octave 4.0.2 from the repository. All software used in running this server VM is open source (Vagrant, VirtualBox, Octave). The Octave server will run headless, and display the Octave GUI and graphics on the Mac host via the Mac's native X-windows server. The recommended configuration ensures that by default user files written by the GUI are in a folder shared with the Mac's filesystem, and the VM suspends automatically when the user quits the GUI. Any edited files then persist in the Mac's shared folder.
