Before proceeding, make sure your DDEV installation is up to date.
In a new project folder using your favorite shell, run these lines:
ddev config --project-type=typo3 --docroot=public --create-docroot --php-version 7.4 ddev composer create --no-install "typo3/cms-base-distribution:^8.7" ddev composer install ddev typo3cms install:setup ddev launch
Important note for Git Bash users on Windows using the default terminal MSYS2, don't forget to prepend winpty to interactive commands:
winpty ddev typo3cms install:setup
If you are experienced with Composer you can create your own composer.json and select the needed packages of TYPO3 via the Composer Helper. Instead of the
ddev composer create command above, run the command created with the Composer Helper prepended with
ddev config --project-type=typo3 --docroot=public --create-docroot --php-version 7.4 ddev composer require "typo3/cms-core:^8.7" "typo3/minimal:^8.7" ... ddev typo3cms install:setup (if the TYPO3 Console is installed) ddev launch
composer create-project "typo3/cms-base-distribution:^8.7" my-new-project

Package Signatures - Verifying integrity of releases
TYPO3 Release Packages (the downloadable tarballs and zip files) as well as Git tags are signed using PGP signatures since TYPO3 v7 during the automated release process. Besides that, SHA1 and SHA2-256 hashes are being generated for these files. Find more details on verifying signatures and hashes in the infrastructure guide.
