To connect to Isotope, please follow the steps outlined below;


For the installation of this plugin, we recommend a composer based installation via the cli-console


1. First, download the contao-lib package, located here: contao-lib. Followed by downloading the isotope-lib package, here: isotope-lib

2. Next, you can unzip both of the files

3. Upload both of these folders with the files into your web-root, or a folder that you have named - e.g. MyBundles

4. Next, edit your composer web-root file composer.json and add the following code with the repository details after authors details/section:


“repositories”: [

  {

  “type”: “path”,

  “url”: “mybundles/contao-lib-master”,

  “options”: {

  “symlink”: true

  }

  },

{

  “type”: “path”,

  “url”: “mybundles/isotope-lib-master”,

  “options”: {

  “symlink”: true

  }

  }

],


5. Edit your composer web-root file composer.json again and add the following code under section require.

   

 „myparcelcom/contao-lib“:  “^1.0“,

„myparcelcom/isotope-lib“: “^1.0“


6. Use the console command composer update.

7. Update the contao database via e.g. your browser https://[yourWebroot]/contao/install


Your installation is now complete, and you are ready to setup the configuration via the CONTAO backend. This is described in the readme.md file of the downloaded packages.
