Request composer-based install instructions

Hi, just bought the theme and used the instructions for adding the theme to an existing site. It's not quite showing up correctly and I haven't tracked down what the issue is yet.

Part of the problem might be because I am using Composer to install. Since Drupal 8 has moved to composer-based installations, I recommend creating a third set of instructions and making those the recommended ones. Adding contrib modules to a site (like Features, for instance) manually isn't the recommended procedure anymore.

These instructions would describe how to modify the composer.json file to include the necessary contrib modules. Not sure how to handle the custom Dawn modules since you need to sell them as opposed to make them available on d.o.

My setup is using: for the scaffold
• this uses:
"web/core": ["type:drupal-core"],
"web/libraries/{$name}": ["type:drupal-library"],
"web/modules/contrib/{$name}": ["type:drupal-module"],
"web/profiles/contrib/{$name}": ["type:drupal-profile"],
"web/themes/contrib/{$name}": ["type:drupal-theme"],
• I then create a web/modules/custom directory for my custom modules.

This is a standard type of install as of March 2018. When I do what I think is necessary, I'm not quite getting a proper install. I'll open another issue for that, if necessary. This post is more about getting a solid installation using composer instructions.
