Yes. When I want to test the cloud image I often use:
for a small script which generates the ISO on demand from an already
extracted user-data file. When using production infrastructure I normally set
as a basic template.
I also have a `user-data.insecure` which hardcodes a password for local VMs, so
usage looks like:
sudo walters-create-cloud-vm create --user-data /home/walters/Documents/user-data.insecure --name f22-atomic-test --image Fedora-Cloud-Atomic-22-20150720.x86_64
However another important point to make here is that "run a cloud image locally
in libvirt on a workstation" is basically the use case for Vagrant - it does things
like detecting the IP address so you can `vagrant ssh` etc.
