Urban Hipster - Commerce 2 & Drupal 8 Demo

This is a full Commerce 2 demo website built on Drupal 8. It has been built for 3 reasons:

  1. So that people can view, interact and login to an actual working demo site.
  2. So that developers can install, trial and review code and configuration.
  3. So that the community can see and discuss what Drupal Commerce includes basically out of-the-box.

NOTE: This is NOT intended to be a base for building a new project, for that we recommend generating your own composer files yourself or use the Commerce Kickstart.


The Urban Hipster demo site has been designed, built and maintained by Acro Media Inc. in order to showcase a working demo of Commerce 2 on Drupal 8. Our goal is to provide an enterprise level example of what can be done out-of-the-box with general software configuration and theming.

Please understand that while we strive to keep the site and its components updated to the latest versions, there may be times where we lag behind a bit.

If you notice any bugs, please submit an issue. We’ll do our best to keep on top of things.

If you’d like to have one of our experts go through the site with you and discuss how things work, use the demo site chat or send us a message. We’ll set something up that works around your schedule. You can contact us through are website here.

Developer access

If you’d like to setup a copy of the demo yourself, follow these instructions.


  • Composer
  • PHP 7.1 or higher
  • MariaDB, MSQL, or equivalent
  • Apache, NGINX, or equivalent
  • Apache Solr 5.5
  • General knowledge on how to setup a website server and use these tools

To setup the demo

  1. Clone or download the files.
  2. Cd into the cloned repo and run composer install.
  3. Extract dumps/files.tar.gz into web/sites/default.
  4. Create a database and import dumps/database.sql.
  5. Configure your settings.php or local.settings.php to use the newly created database.
  6. Setup Apache Solr cores for the site to use - one for product search and one for the Point of Sale search (use Solr 5.x).
  7. Get your hosting setup (local or otherwise). The web root is /web.
  8. View the site!
  9. Login with username and password as demoadmin.
    • NOTE: demoadmin does have some restrictions. If you'd prefer to login as a full admin, use Drush from the /web root to get a one-time admin login. Drush 9.0 is included in the vendor dir, so run ../vendor/drush/drush/drush uli.
  10. Enter your Solr core within ‘Configure Standard Solr Connector’ at
  11. Reindex the products at



If you notice any bugs, please submit an issue. We’ll do our best to keep on top of things.

Demo setup

Please note, our team is busy completing service work for clients, and thus, we will not be able to help you with setting up the demo on your own. If you’re having trouble, some things that could cause your issue are:

  • Is your site running on PHP 7.1 or higher?
  • Are your Drupal file & folder permissions correct?
  • Flush caches (i.e. through Drupal UI or run ../vendor/drush/drush/drush cr from within /web)
  • Update entities (i.e. run ../vendor/drush/drush/drush entup from within /web)
  • Update database (i.e. run ../vendor/drush/drush/drush updb from within /web)

If those don’t help, Google the issue or submit an issue to our issue queue. Google will probably be your best friend :)

Let us set it up for you (and other stuff)

If you’re a business and interested in having Acro Media setup the demo for you, or if you’d like to talk to us about something else, contact us!
