    Setting up a local development server installing plugins and modules you might need to develop Drupal theme


    Firt we need to setup the local sever where we gonna run our Drupal site


    1. First we need a server, XAMPP is very popular AMP stack provider (Apache, MySQL, PHP, phpMyAdmin) it normally provides a one step installer containing everything we need to set up a server environment on our local machine.


    1. Go to the https://www.apachefriends.org
    2. Here You will be provided the latest information with what going on in XAMPP world. you can see the XAMPP is available for different OS such as XAMPP for windows, XAMPP for Linux,and XAMPP for Mac os. Click according to your OS I will be downloading XAMPP for windos as I have windows installed on my system.
    3. When the pop-up prompts you to save the file, click OK and the installer will download to your computer.
    4. Locate the downloaded archive (.zip) package on your local machine, and double-click it. Once double click it will start the installer
    5. Follow the steps in the installer and then click Finish to close the installer. That's it

    To create a new website, simply copy the files in our case drupal folder into a directory placed inside the /htdocs directory. Now you can access the site by opening the yrl in your browser. http://localhost/sitedirectoryname.


    Additional things you can give a try are as under


    1. install the firefox webdeveloper tool
    2. When working with theme the folowing drupal modules could save you tons of hours Download Devel from: Devel module. You can find Theme developer at: Theme Developer


    Thanks
