Have a look at the Developer Guide here: https://docs.civicrm.org/dev/en/latest/ as a start.

If at all possible I would recommend trying to find an expert near you who would be able to give you a developer training. You would have to pay for it but it will probably save you a lot of exploration time :-)


Download Buildkit from github. Then set environment variable.

Set civicrm.setting.php in evvironment variable (C:\xampp\htdocs\drupal\sites\default\civicrm.setting.php)
Then goto the directory -> {I am using xampp -> C:\xampp\htdocs\drupal\sites\default\files\civicrm\ext ).
Open your cmd (right shift + right click) then type
civix civicrm:ping

  • You don't need the entire buildkit just to get Civix which can be downloaded as a self-contained PHAR. Oct 29, 2018 at 11:32
  • then follow the instruction of civix and if you get any problem then post again. We Shall help
