Ionic box..working offline

I’ve been trying to setup my environments to work with ionic-cordova for weeks…with no success.
mainly because many tools are involved and my poor internet connection.
seems like all tools need a connection to internet.

so, i thought ionicbox would solve my headache…but again no luck.
stuck with the vagrant up command…taking forever to finish…
can i download the .box file and use the box offline ?
where can i download it and what to do to properly set it up?
