Umami: Drupal 8 demonstration installation profile

Last updated on

This documentation is incomplete. Add more information.

The Umami installation profile is for demo purposes only

Umami is an example food magazine website to demonstrate some of the features of Drupal core. It is intended to be used as a sample site, and not suitable as a foundation for building your own site.

Why is Umami just for demo use?

The Umami feature set will change and improve over time as new features are added to Drupal, and there is no promise of backwards compatibility. If you update to a newer version of Drupal you may see some changes in your Umami installation, such as:

  • Changes to the theme (how the site looks). For example, if we have hard-coded a background image in the theme, but decide to use something else for this background image at a later date.
  • Changes to site configuration. In this case, you will not have the latest configuration, but your current installation should still work. If you want to be up-to-date with the latest features of Umami, you will need to empty your database and install a fresh version of Umami.

What to do when you are ready to build your Drupal website

Once you've tried Drupal using Umami and want to build your own site, simply reinstall Drupal selecting the Minimal or Standard profiles from the install screen. You will then be able to upgrade to future versions of Drupal 8 at will since those two profiles maintain backwards compatibility.

Thank you for installing Umami. We hope you like it!
