Quick start

Lando Drupal

First, ensure that you have the CLI installed and that you have authenticated your account. Then, install Lando and Docker per Lando’s installation instructions.

If you do not yet have your project checked out, run:

If you already have your project checked out locally, change into the project directory and run:

Lando Drupal Composer

That will use your existing git clone and add the appropriate Lando configuration.

Either way, start the local environment by running:

You can then download data from the environment for your current branch and load it into your local Lando environment by running:

Pantheon Lando

Where the value after -r is the relationship name in the application for the service you want to download, and -m is the mount path you want to download. You may specify as many relationships (multiple -r switches) and as many mounts (multiple -m switches) as you wish.
