This installation profile is not maintained anymore and its usage discouraged.

We recommend to create your own profile or use the "minimal" installation profile.
You can use the profile switcher module to switch installation profile for existing sites.

OpenEuropa profile

Build Status Packagist

Basic installation profile, all it does is:

  1. Enable the bare minimum amount of core modules.
  2. Setup seven as administrative theme and oe_theme as front-end theme.


Opting for a minimalistic installation profile will make it easier to deal with a fully distributed approach: the installation profile is seen as an empty shell that will never pose any compatibility issue to any of the site's modules and themes. Most importantly this will allow modules and themes maintainers to properly version their work semantically.

This profile will also be used to build a basic site using the multiple components of OpenEuropa.


The recommended way of installing the OpenEuropa Profile is via a Composer-based workflow.

In the root of the project, run

$ composer install

Before setting up and installing the site make sure to customize default configuration values by copying ./runner.yml.dist to ./runner.yml and override relevant properties.

To set up the project run:

$ ./vendor/bin/run drupal:site-setup

This will:

  • Symlink the profile in ./build/profiles/custom/oe_profile so that it's available to the target site
  • Setup Drush and Drupal's settings using values from ./runner.yml.dist
  • Setup Behat configuration file using values from ./runner.yml.dist

Please note: project files and directories are symlinked within the target site by using the OpenEuropa Task Runner's Drupal project symlink command.

If you add a new file or directory in the root of the project, you need to re-run drupal:site-setup in order to make sure they are correctly symlinked.

If you don't want to re-run a full site setup for that, you can simply run:

$ ./vendor/bin/run drupal:symlink-project

After a successful setup install the site by running:

$ ./vendor/bin/run drupal:site-install

This will:

  • Install the target site
  • Set the OpenEuropa Theme as the default theme
  • Enable development modules

Using Docker Compose

The setup procedure described above can be sensitively simplified by using Docker Compose.


Copy docker-compose.yml.dist into docker-compose.yml.

You can make any alterations you need for your local Docker setup. However, the defaults should be enough to set the project up.


$ docker-compose up -d


$ docker-compose exec web composer install
$ docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/run drupal:site-install

Your test site will be available at http://localhost:8080/build.

Run tests as follows:

$ docker-compose exec web ./vendor/bin/behat

Step debugging

To enable step debugging from the command line, pass the XDEBUG_SESSION environment variable with any value to the container:

docker-compose exec -e XDEBUG_SESSION=1 web <your command>

Please note that, starting from XDebug 3, a connection error message will be outputted in the console if the variable is set but your client is not listening for debugging connections. The error message will cause false negatives for PHPUnit tests.

To initiate step debugging from the browser, set the correct cookie using a browser extension or a bookmarklet like the ones generated at
