Hey all Just found the Civibuildkit using Vagrant - made my day as they have a build that was useful for me to test and work on for my site.

My question is: Is there some one out there that can help me figure out how to create (load) the drupal-case (which is Drupal8 with the latest Civicrm build) without sample data.

I have tried to go through the files to figure it out, but if someone can point me in the right direction it would be great.

Update: BuildKit currently cannot build Drupal 8 sites because of the composer requirement.

To build a Drupal 8 Clean site with CiviBuild you would use the command:

Note: CiviBuild cannot currently build Drupal 8 sites with the demo data.

civibuild create d8-master or civibuild create <NAME> --type drupal8-clean

Note: This will create a Civi 'master' site using the latest bleeding edge CiviCRM code. To build using a specific CiviCRM version use --civi-ver e.g. --civi-ver 5.6.0

The full command to create a Drupal 8, CiviCRM 5.6.0 without demo data and named d8c560 with the URL http://d8c560.test is:

civibuild create d8c560 --type drupal8-clean --civi-ver 5.6.0 --url http://d8c560.test

The build you refer to dcase or ==type drupal-case builds a Drupal 7 site for testing the CiviCase v5 extension.

CiviBuild Docs

The CiviBuild documentation is worth reading:

CiviCase v5

Information on CiviCase v5 (it's awesome!) and the associated dcase build is here:

  • Yes. I did that before I made the post and I get the message when it gets to installing Civicrm that it cannot use “drush” and that civicrm must be installed using “composer” that was why I liked the “drupal-case” but I will do it again maybe I missed something Oct 13, 2018 at 13:51

    So I can confirm that BuildKit "master" cannot build Drupal 8 sites. Oct 15, 2018 at 21:19

    Yes unless someone fixed the Drush install of civicrm to use composer- you will get drupal 8 but you won’t get civicrm. If I am wrong I would love to know how to fix or do it Oct 15, 2018 at 23:29
