The Drupal WxT distribution provides a good starting point for any GoC application, especially those that will be using the GCWeb (Canada.ca) or GCIntranet themes. In order to take advantage of the docker-scaffold setup, use the site-wxt composer template. It automatically pulls in the docker scaffolding for us and uses docker-compose to build our docker containers with networking.
Clone drupalwxt/site-wxt composer template
The first step is to setup the WxT composer template. We do this by cloning the drupalwxt/site-wxt repository.
$ git clone https://github.com/drupalwxt/site-wxt.git site-[NAME]
$ cd site-[NAME]
Now use composer to pull all of the dependencies into our project.
$ composer install
Build the Docker containers
Next run a make command to build our Docker containers.
$ make build
Start the Docker container
Now we can start the Docker containers by running the following command.
$ make docker_start
View Drupal WxT in a browser
Now you can visit localhost in your browser to access the Drupal WxT install wizard.
