Composer is the recommended way to install and maintain a site. Site administrators using Ludwig need to be careful when combining modules that depend on external libraries, since there are no safeguards against incompatible library versions or overlapping requirements.
These instructions assume you are working with an existing site. See the Drupal.org documentation on Installing Drupal 8 if you do not have an existing site.
Download and install the Ludwig module.
Download Commerce and the following 6 required modules. Do not install the modules yet.
admin/reports/packagesprovides a download link for each missing library along with the paths where they should be placed.
Download the libraries, then clear the cache to make them available. For example, download commerceguys/addressing and place it in
modules/contrib/address/lib/commerceguys-addressing/v1.0.0. You should see the STATUS for each required package change from "Missing" to "Installed". Alternatively, if you are comfortable with the command line, you can use Drupal Console or Drush commands.
Whenever Commerce needs to be updated, all 7 modules need to be downloaded again, and then all of their libraries need to be downloaded again as well.
In subsequent sections of the Installation and updates documentation, it is assumed that you are using Composer to manage your site.
