Create custom site package (optional)

Usually you will create a new site-package for your project. This repository contains two example packages that sitegeist uses as starting point for new projects. The Vendor.Site package uses a build stack with css-modules and css + typescript colocation, while the Vendor.WheelInventor package is built using TailwindCss.

A site package has a package key that consists of a vendor Namespace and Package name that are seperated by a dot. You should always choose a unique package key in the customer namespace to implement custom designs. A good example wozld be Acme.Marketing. In the following examples __your_site_package_key__ refers to the the package key you choose here.

You can choose to copy the included Vendor.Site package or the Vendor.WheelInventor package into the project namespace:

ddev flow package:adopt Vendor.Site __your_site_package_key__


ddev flow package:adopt Vendor.WheelInventor __your_site_package_key__

If you are improving the sitegeis/neos-base-distribution you likely want to skip this and adjust the example packahes as they are.

Background: Vendor.Site is a blank site package with no defined frontend components, no content node types and a CSS Modules setup. Vendor.WheelInventor uses Tailwind CSS and defines a lot of default frontend components and content node types. Use the latter to quickstart projects of medium size.

After cloning the site package you have to require the newly created package via composer.

ddev composer require customer/site

After which you may decide to remove the packages Vendor.Site, Vendor.WheelInventor and Sitegeist.Chantalle as they are only needed to kickstart further site-packages from now on. The package Sitegeist.Chantalle is included here as it implements the adopt command for the previous task:

ddev composer remove vendor/site
ddev composer remove vendor/wheelinventor
ddev composer remove sitegeist/chantalle

Altenatively you may require an existing site-package like Neos.Demo via composer:

composer-require neos/demo

Initialize the project git repository

The following commands will initialize the git repository, setup git-hooks and perform composer and yarn install.

git init
make install

Impport site-content or create a new site

ddev flow site:import --package-key __your_site_package_key__

Running the site locally

You can start a development server via:

You can clone your projectdata directly with make. This command shows up the list and ask for the preset.

make clone

or type the preset directly:
