This is a composer based installer for the Open Social distribution.


  1. Composer

It's just composer, isn't it awesome? :)

Installation of Open Social

composer create-project goalgorilla/social_template:dev-master DIRECTORY --no-interaction

Composer will create a new directory called DIRECTORY. The installed folders will contain all Drupal related files in the html directory and any third-party dependencies in the composer vendor directory. Drupal core will be installed to html/core. Inside you will find the html directory with the entire code base of the Open Social distribution. Install your Open Social site like any other Drupal website using the install.php script or drush.
