Install on a new eZ Platform project¶
Netgen provides an uptodate installation of eZ Platform with Netgen Layouts pre-installed. The installation is based on a clean eZ Platform install, ready to be used as a base for your new project.
This installation can later be used to upgrade to future versions of eZ Platform by following official eZ Systems upgrade instructions.
Create a database¶
Create a database for your project with:
CREATE DATABASE my_project CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_520_ci;
Install Composer and execute the following from a directory of your choice and specify the database connection info when asked:
$ composer create-project netgen/layouts-ezplatform-site my_project $ cd my_project
Install the database¶
Run the following commands from the project root to install eZ Platform database together with Netgen Layouts database tables:
$ php bin/console ezplatform:install clean $ php bin/console doctrine:migrations:migrate --configuration=vendor/netgen/layouts-core/migrations/doctrine.yml
Rendering block items¶
To render block items, Netgen Layouts by default uses an eZ Platform view type
standard. For every content object that you wish to include in a
Netgen Layouts block, you need to define the
standard view type, e.g.:
ezpublish: system: site_group: content_view: standard: article: template: "@ezdesign/content/standard/article.html.twig" match: Identifier\ContentType: article
Start the app¶
You can use the web server included with Symfony CLI to serve the app:
$ symfony server:ca:install # For HTTPS support, only needs to be ran once $ symfony server:start
After that, open
https://127.0.0.1:8000 in your browser to run the app.
