Distributions are full copies of Drupal that include Drupal Core, along with additional software such as themes, modules, libraries, and installation profiles. There are two main types of Drupal distributions:

  • Full-featured distributions: complete solutions for specialized use cases.
  • Other distributions: quick-start tools, starting points for developers and site builders.
