How-to: Using Drupal-Project to Craft Your Perfect Start State
The drupal-project repository is quickly becoming the de facto starter for all Drupal 8 projects. So how can you quickly spin up a new site with Composer and drupal-project? How do you take drupal-project and customize it to suit your particular needs? And, how do you leverage post-install tasks to keep yourself DRY? This February I gave a talk at DrupalCamp Florida where I got into all of these questions. Get clicking to see my answers and watch the video of my talk.
In putting together my DrupalCamp Florida talk, I wanted to help people save time, follow best practices, make their own development experience more enjoyable, and look cool in the process. (Super important.) You’ll probably get a lot out of watching the video of my session if:
You've been wanting to try out Composer
You already use Composer but want to learn more about the best practices
You frequently spin up new sites, whether for module development, agency work, or for funzies
You're thinking about using one of the popular distributions (e.g., Lightning) and wonder if there's a better option
You are a Composer expert, so you can tell me all about my mistakes ;)
