Drush User's Guide by Juan Pablo Novillo Requena

Drush User's Guide is written for Drupal developers or themers who understand its web-based administration. If you have never touched a terminal, this book has a progressive pace starting with command structure and finishing with how to simplify complex commands that interact with remote servers.

It will be advantageous to know the basic terminal commands in order to move around, copy and manage directories, connect and interact with a database, log in to remote systems, and to have basic PHP programming skills.

A completely practical book full of examples and step-by-step guides to start using Drush right from chapter 1.

Drush User's Guide will go through everything you need to build and maintain Drupal sites through the command line. You will learn to install Drush in different platforms; its basic usage, practical examples of each command; steps to write your own; alter existing commands; and extend Drush with contributed modules.

Become a Drush expert by testing with its command toolkit; customizing it to suit your needs and extending it with contributed modules.

Download, enable and upgrade Drupal projects in seconds; clear the cache, interact with databases; back up files, code and data in one single file; deploy sites to remote machines; write your own commands; alter existing ones; and extend the toolkit with a long list of contributed modules.

Drush User's Guide has everything you need to build and manage your Drupal sites from the command line.

About the Author

Juan Pablo Novillo Requena
Juan started building PHP websites professionally in London after finishing his University studies in 2006. He spent some time using Symfony and Ruby on Rails and in 2010, back in Spain, he created his first website with Drupal. His commitment with the Drupal Community started a year later once he discovered how much fun and challenging it was to contribute. Currently, he maintains several modules such as Twitter and Oauth among others, he frequently submits and reviews patches for other projects (recently Drush), he participates in the Madrid and Spanish communities with talks and code sprints and overall he does his best to help Drupal evolve and become known to a wider audience.

I would like to thank Lorena for her everyday support in my career and life. My family for believing in me and being so helpful. Also, thanks to my colleague Tushar Mahajan (http://drupal.org/user/398572), whose passion for Drupal and guidance was what got me into all this up to a level I could not even imagine.
