Sector is a Drupal 8 distribution (or install profile) built and maintained by Sparks Interactive.


This repository is for inclusion as part of a composer create-project installation only.

Complete installation instructions are available at the main Sector repository:

Quick Start

Composer will create a new directory called {project-name} containing a web directory with a complete Drupal 8 codebase and the Sector install profile.

composer create-project sparksinteractive/sector-project {project-name}

What Does This Template Do?

When installing the given composer.json some tasks are taken care of:

  • Drupal core will be installed in the web/core directory.
  • Modules (packages of type drupal-module), themes (packages of type drupal-theme), and profiles (packages of type drupal-profile) are automatically installed to their respective web/(modules|themes|profiles)/contrib directories.
  • Downloads Drupal scaffold files such as index.php and .htaccess in the web directory.
  • The latest version of Drush is installed locally for use at bin/drush.
  • The latest version of Drupal Console is installed locally for use at bin/drupal.
