[Drupal]Drupal 8 Sandbox

Installation of Drupal 8 Sandbox

Why Use the Sandbox version?
If you want to give drupal a try, but you're unsure of how it'll look like or want to check how it works, the sandbox version is just for you. If you already know how to set up drupal on your lamp server, then you'll have no problem at all to set up the sandbox version. If, somehow, you can't figure it out, then you can just follow the simple steps below and you'll be there.

In the steps below, we'll use Sandbox version of Drupal to generate a new issue, and patch it using Git.


  • Git

  • Steps:

    Step 1: Clone it
    Start by opening your terminal and clone the repository by running the following the command:

    git clone --branch 8.x drupal-sandbox
    This command will clone drupal 8 sandbox and the all the files will be in a folder 'drupal-sandbox'. You can change the name of the folder to any name you want.
    After cloning, change your directory and move into the folder. Make a copy of the default.settings.php file inside sites/default/ and create a new directory called sites/default/files.

    Ensure that you make both of them writable by changing their permissions.

    Step 2: Installation
    Open up your browser and run the installation by running localhost.
    Note: You can check my blog post on how to install Drupal 8(Not Sandbox) on LAMP Server.

    How to install the FReMP Stack on Ubuntu 20.04?

    Technology keeps on evolving everyday and developers constantly look for more and more things to get their hands-on. In this article, I will be introducing a new full stack framework, called FReMP . The abbreviation used is not the best one, but it just gets the work done in justifiable ways. What on earth is FReMP stack? The FReMP stack is a highly scalable full stack framework, which can be used to build awesome web apps. The acronym stands for F lask, Re actJS, M ongodb and P ython. Unlike other famous stacks such as MEAN and MERN, the FReMP stack uses Python to handle back-end operations. Examples of such operations can be machine learning and artificial intelligence operations, web scraping tools or digital image processing. Step 0: Update your list of installed packages While this is optional, it is always a good practice to update your list of packages and upgrade them for newer versions before starting any installation on your environment. Run the following to do so: $ apt-get

    [Python]Publish your python project to PyPI
