One of the main aims of Debut is to make it easy to build cohesive and feature-rich Drupal distributions.

The quick version

To integrate one or more Debut features into your distribution is quick and easy.

  1. First, edit your distribution's .make file to include the Debut feature's file. This means adding a single line to your .make file. For current examples, see the Open Outreach .make file. The next time you build your distro, you'll get the Debut feature and all its dependencies.
  2. Edit your distribution's .info file to add the dependency on the Debut feature.


Not everything is covered off in Debut. You'll also want to have some basic setup--selecting an admin theme, enabling a few blocks, and so on. You could look at the Open Outreach install profile for ideas here. In fact, you could start by cloning that install profile and adapting from there.
