How to use a blueprint

See also: Blueprint

Blueprints provide a shortcut to initialising Multipass instances for a variety of applications.

To see what blueprints are available, run

multipass find

See more: multipass find

To use a blueprint run:

multipass launch <blueprint name>

Launching a blueprint can take the same arguments as launching any other type of instance. If no further arguments are specified, the instance will launch with the defaults defined in the blueprint. Here’s an example of creating an instance from the docker blueprint with a few more parameters specified:

multipass launch docker --name docker-dev --cpus 4 --memory 8G --disk 50G --bridged

This command will create an instance based on the docker blueprint, with 4 CPU cores, 8GB of RAM, 50 GB of disk space, and connect that instance to the (predefined) bridged network.
