In a shared CentOS with Bash I ran under
composer require drupal/drupal
The output was one dir and two files:
vendor/ composer.json composer.lock
That's not what I expected... I Expected to have a Drupal zip/tar downloaded, extracted and then deleted, and the directory filled with Drupal content.
The Drupal content I'd hope for is a common, stable/LTS (8.5.x) and non-minimal, "trivial" install.
How could I achieve just that?
I'd prefer not to use Composer because I'm not a PHP developer and I don't want to learn Composer.
Given this cannot be done with Drush, maybe it is possible some other way with Drupal Console?
I cannot use shell globs in this shared server environment so customizing something with
curl isn't possible.
