Codacy Badge Build Status

Presto is a Drupal 8 distribution with batteries included! It sets up some sane content editing defaults and helps you kickstart your site with Drupal Commerce.

Installing Presto

The recommended way to install Presto is to use our Composer project scaffolding:

composer create-project sitback/presto-project MYPROJECT --stability dev --no-interaction

You can also download a pre-packaged tarball off, however, due to limitations of the packager, installing eCommerce is not supported with this installation method.

Note: Only PHP 5.6 and above are officially supported. The profile should run under PHP 5.5 however it isn't tested and may have unforeseen quirks.

Included in Presto

You can demo most of the below functionality on our demo site (coming soon!). In the meantime, you can spin up a new free instance on (this does not include eCommerce due to the limitations outlined above).

Presto includes the following functionality pre-configured and ready to use right out-of-the-box:

  • An Article content type with some pre-configured fields
  • A Basic Page content type with a Paragraphs-based body field
  • Some pre-configured Paragraph types:
    • Textbox
    • Image
    • Promo bar
    • Divider
    • Carousel
    • Block (allows the embedding of Drupal blocks)
  • An Articles listing page (at /articles) which displays a paginated listing of articles, sorted by publish date
  • A contact page (at /contact) that contains an embedded contact form
    • Submissions are emailed and also stored within Drupal
  • Google Analytics installed (but not configured!)
  • The ability to add meta tags to all entities on the site
  • Automated Cron disabled by default
  • A couple of pre-configured user roles: Administrator & Editor
  • The ability to share nodes on social media
  • Pathauto for automatical URL aliasing
  • Canonical redirect functionality
    • e.g. if you add an alias to node:1, users accessing /node/1 will be redirected to the alias
  • XML sitemap generation
  • A shiny, magical theme, based off Bootstrap 3 (coming soon!)
  • Optional, pre-configured eCommerce functionality, via Drupal Commerce.
    • See the eCommerce section for full details.

To supply this functionality, Presto ships with the following contributed modules enabled by default:

  • Admin Toolbar

  • Two products with variations: Physical Book and eBook
    • Physical Book: Paperback and Hardcover
    • eBook: ePub, Mobi, PDF, and HTML
  • Flatrate shipping
  • A dummy payment gateway for testing purposes
    • The Commerce Stripe module is also included but not installed by default
  • Two order order item types: Digital Item and Physical Item
    • Physical items have shipping, digital items do not
  • Tax (GST) setup for Australia
  • A products listing view and page (at /products)

Enabling eCommerce installs the following contributed modules:

  • Drupal Commerce (and its included modules)
  • Drupal Commerce Shipping
  • Physical Fields

Known Issues

  • If you embed a block with a form in it onto a node, via the Component: Block Paragraph type, it may break the node/edit page for that node. We're monitoring an ongoing issue in the block_field module that should resolve this. (#42)
