I have been struggling with this for quite some time. I am trying to install a demo of the Commerce module as provided by Centarro, but every time the install finishes, I only get an empty site with the Beograd theme enabled but no product catalogue at all.

Here's what I do every time I try.

  1. I install the Commerce module via composer create-project.

    composer create-project drupalcommerce/demo-project demo-commerce --stability dev --no-interaction

  2. I require the commerce_demo:2.0 package.

    composer require drupal/commerce_demo

  3. Then I proceed with installing Drupal the standard way by going to my localhost URL. I select the profile provided by the commerce_demo module which should install the complete package.

However, every time the install finishes, there's still just an empty store with the Beograd theme enabled. I see that the products are created, as well as brand and category taxonomy terms but I don't get any working catalogue made using facets and search API.

Is there anyone who managed to get the entire demo working and can provide a file/database dump or point me in the right direction?

You're hitting issues because the 2.x branch of Commerce Demo is intended to be used in the context of the new 3.x branch of Commerce Kickstart. This is a work in progress. If you're just trying to reproduce what we host at https://commerce.demo.centarro.io, I recommend the following tutorial:


Just bear in mind that even that is now outdated with the Drupal 8 EOL. You shouldn't have any issues for demo purposes, but I do think it should work fine with Drupal 9. I just haven't tested it yet.
