Getting Started


Before you get started with this recipe, we assume that you have:

  1. Installed Lando and gotten familiar with its basics.
  2. Initialized a Landofile for your codebase for use with this recipe.
  3. Read about the various services, tooling, events and routing Lando offers.

Quick Start

You can also run the following commands to try out this recipe on one of your Acquia sites.

# Go through interactive prompts to get your code from acquia
lando init --source acquia

# OR if you already have your acquia code locally
cd /path/to/repo
lando init \
  --source cwd \
  --recipe acquia

# Start it up
lando start

# Import your database and files
lando pull

# List information about this app.
lando info

Custom Installation

This plugin is included with Lando by default. That means if you have Lando version 3.0.8 or higher then this plugin is already installed!

However if you would like to manually install the plugin, update it to the bleeding edge or install a particular version then use the below. Note that this installation method requires Lando 3.5.0+.

::: code-group-item DOCKER

# Ensure you have a global plugins directory
mkdir -p ~/.lando/plugins

# Install plugin
# NOTE: Modify the "npm install @lando/acquia" line to install a particular version eg
# npm install @lando/acquia@0.5.2
docker run --rm -it -v ${HOME}/.lando/plugins:/plugins -w /tmp node:14-alpine sh -c \
  "npm init -y \
  && npm install @lando/acquia --production --flat --no-default-rc --no-lockfile --link-duplicates \
  && npm install --production --cwd /tmp/node_modules/@lando/acquia \
  && mkdir -p /plugins/@lando \
  && mv --force /tmp/node_modules/@lando/acquia /plugins/@lando/acquia"

# Rebuild the plugin cache
lando --clear

::: ::: code-group-item HYPERDRIVE

# @NOTE: This doesn't actaully work yet
hyperdrive install @lando/acquia

You should be able to verify the plugin is installed by running lando config --path plugins and checking for @lando/acquia. This command will also show you where the plugin is being loaded from.
