How to install Sitecore Experience accelerator SXA Learning Site "ShowCase"

What is ShowCase for Sitecore Experience Accelerator.?

What Habitat is for Helix; Showcase is for Sitecore Experience Accelerator.

The showcase was originally created by Cognifide for Zen Garden - a product that later evolved into Sitecore Experience Accelerator. And is currently passionately maintained by Adam Najmanowicz

Here are the Steps in order to do Set up for Showcase.


The Latest cut of Showcase can clone or downloaded from Sitecore Showcase





In my case, I have downloaded the same @ C:\projects\Showcase\Sitecore.XA.Showcase




Launch the Visual Studio with Administrative privileges and open the Solution.

Update the showcase folder in Sitecore.XA.Project.Showcase.User.Config depending upon the location you have cloned the Git Solution as shown below.



Rebuild the Solution and Publish the solution to Root of  Sitecore Instance.In my case it was

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\sitecoresxa\Website as shown below



If all goes fine then go to your Sitecore Instance and Login as Admin.

Now goto http://<yourSitecoreinstancename>/unicorn.aspx


Sync in order to install all the Sitecore item.


If all went fine you can see a tenant called showcase and a site called int as shown below


I found some cosmetic issue while accessing in preview mode.




When connnect Sitecore SXA community over Sitecore SXA Slack  Adam replied that the current Git version is not compatible with version 4 and have provided compatible package as given below

Happy Sitecore Experience Acceleration.
