Use Composer to install the Speciality Distribution.
# Download the Speciality Distribution via Composer composer create-project ecodev/typo3-cms-speciality-distribution speciality.lan dev-master

cd speciality.lan # Just make sure the ddev version is accurate ddev config # Check the SQL version and other configuration # And change the domain name edit .ddev/config.yaml # Start the container ddev start ddev composer install ddev exec "touch htdocs/FIRST_INSTALL" # Open the Backend # Create a dummy page at the end of the installation wizard. http://speciality.lan/typo3 # -> Open the Extension Manager and installation EXT:speciality # Edit the "Home" page, BE and set the
If you have creadted a dummy pages, you would like to create a default BE Usergroup on the BE on pid = 0, then execute the following queries:
-- Update the root page UPDATE pages SET tx_fed_page_controller_action = 'Ecodev.speciality->homePage', tx_fed_page_controller_action_sub = 'Ecodev.speciality->standard', TSconfig = '<INCLUDE_TYPOSCRIPT: source="DIR:EXT:speciality/Configuration/PageTS" extension="tsconfig">' WHERE uid = 1; -- Update the template UPDATE sys_template SET title = 'Main TypoScript', description = '', config = "@import 'EXT:speciality/Configuration/TypoScript'\n\nconfig.contentObjectExceptionHandler = 0", include_static_file = "EXT:fluid_styled_content/Configuration/TypoScript/" WHERE uid = 1; -- Update the User permission in the BE UPDATE be_groups SET title = 'User', groupMods = 'web,web_layout,web_list,file,file_VidiSysFileM1,content,content_VidiFeUsersM1,content_VidiFeGroupsM1,user,user_setup,user_MediaM1', tables_select = 'pages,sys_category,sys_file,sys_file_metadata,sys_file_reference,tt_content', tables_modify = 'pages,sys_category,sys_file,sys_file_metadata,sys_file_reference,tt_content', non_exclude_fields = 'sys_file_metadata:categories,pages:nav_hide,pages:hidden,tt_content:hidden', explicit_allowdeny = 'tt_content:CType:text:ALLOW,tt_content:CType:fluidcontent_content:ALLOW', pagetypes_select = '1,4,3,254', db_mountpoints = 1 WHERE uid = 1
Gitify the project
# Remove the old git info and create a new rm -rf .git git init git add . git ci -m "First commit"
Next step would be to generate a pseudo site configuration and add BE permission... Still todo here.
As a next step, you likely want to change the CSS, add some custom layouts or customize configuration.
The place to head to is
EXT:speciality which is located at
htdocs/typo3conf/ext/speciality. The name "speciality"
