This sandbox pairs Drupal 8 with Fedora 5, demonstrating one possible configuration for Islandora 8. Because this version of Isandora is so flexible and places most configuration options in the hands of the front-end site builder, there are many, many ways to build your Islandora site. This sandbox uses the default configuration found in the Islandora Playbook.
