Getting started with the Headless starter kit

Getting started

The recommended way to install Acquia CMS is through the Drupal recommended project Composer template by Acquia:

composer create-project acquia/drupal-recommended-project project
cd project
./vendor/bin/acms acms:install acquia_cms_headless

This installs the headless mode of Acquia CMS by adding required Composer dependencies, installing Drupal, and enabling the required modules. This CLI wizard requires you to confirm if you want demo content, default content model, or a quickstart setup of Next.js.

Warning

The starter kit wizard currently uses drush site:install and drops the database of any existing site. Currently, you cannot use starter kits after installation.
