How to set up project in local environment

I just took over a site and I’m trying to make edits. I’m able to get a new installation up and running, but I’m not sure if I have the files I need to get started on the existing site I’m taking over. When I pull the site to my local machine, I see a “resources”, “vendor” and “node_modules” folder, but no other files.

Hi @j_la1803,

You seem to be missing most of the theme. Has the transfer completed fully?

To speed things up, do not transfer the node_modules and vendor folders. Just reinstall dependencies via npm install and composer install in your local environment.

Hello. This is how I did it just a few days ago on MacOS

Install Homebrew
Install Lima
Install Trellis
Get the default theme running
Download your git project inside of “site” in the trellis folder
Use the command that installs everything, I don’t remember what it’s called but I think it’s something with provision development
Run yarn build inside of the theme folder
Run composer install inside of Lima

You should now be able to access the site at example.test or whatever you named your local site

Write back if you have any issues
