Local development

Use of a local development environment is a recommended best practice for developers working with the Drupal Kit. There are multiple options available for site developers wishing to set up a local environment for a Drupal Kit site:

Lando/Pantheon Localdev

Developers working on sites hosted on Pantheon may wish to try out Lando to take advantage of this platform’s built-in integration with the Pantheon platform. It includes support for syncing databases and files from Pantheon environments to your local workstation.

Other local server environments

Most other LAMP stack environments will be compatible with Drupal Kit 3 as long as they support the server requirements and the ability to set the web directory of your project as the web root.
