Set up a local development environment to practice Drupal theme development. In order to practice theme development, either on your own or following our Hands-On: Theming guide, you'll need a Drupal site up and running on your computer.

By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to:

  • Install Drupal 8 on your computer so you can modify files with a code editor of your choice.
  • Generate dummy content so that you have different kinds of pages to theme.
