The easiest way for a developer to try out MODX3 is using composer with the following command:

composer create-project modx/revolution www 3.x-dev

This will install MODX3 in a folder called 'www'. You can change this folder to whatever you want. After composer install, just go to http://your-path-to-modx.tld/setup/ to do the usual MODX installation.

Support the team building MODX with a monthly donation.

The budget raised through OpenCollective is transparent, including payouts, and any contributor can apply to be paid for their work on MODX.
