Mentor, Contractor | Flock Studios

Employment type: 
Not allowed

Hi, looking for a drupal mentor to help me approach drupal website building efficiently and cleanly.

I have been using drupal for around 2 years on and off with a couple of projects, I love it. The more I use it the more I want to learn.

I am originally a graphic designer turned brand creator, for now that includes website building.

I have 2 projects, possibly a third one all to be developed in Drupal over the coming 2 months.

I want to learn how to:
- Install, Backup and Restore Drupal from the command line
- Best practices that you may have acquired over the years

Bash Aliases

I can't imagine administering drupal without drush. I've set up some aliases in my bash profile. I've become so dependent on these, that I synchronize my file through bitbucket. For example, the function drupre will put the site in offline mode, run cron, clear cache, and then put the site back in online mode. The other is drubackup which will save the file structure and database dump to a date based file structure.

Does anyone have any other alias commands to speed up work flow?

Color Coded Command Line

Last night while I was demoing, someone mentioned the colors I had on the command line and how it also denoted which GIT branch I was in. You can thanks James Sansbury (q0rban) for the code.

My instructions are biased towards MAC users. Sorry.

You need Git already installed for this to work.

In your terminal... //denotes my comments

//Find where your bash file is
ls ~/.bash_profile

//This returns "/Users/miche/.bash_profile" for me
//change directory (cd) to that path
cd /Users/miche

//Make sure you are there by "print working directory"

Non-GUI execution

We are trying to integrate Patterns execution in our change management system based on Liquibase. It seems like the Patterns module only supports execution in GUI mode. Is there any way to execute them from command line or any API we can use to create a Drush extension?

Does the Configuration Framework try to cover these use cases? If so, what's its current development status and where should we start looking for more information?

Thanks a lot!
