If you want to change the way an existing Drush command works you use hooks. Hooks are useful for altering command parameters, options, annotation data, and adding custom logic during particular stages of the command execution process. Drush hooks are conceptually similar to Drupal hooks.
Hooks are methods on a Drush command class with an annotation indicating what hook is being implemented, and thus when the code should be invoked. The code in the methods is executed during specific stages of the command cycle. Developers can use core hooks -- predefined methods that come with Drush core -- or declare a custom hook that other commands can use.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Explore the different core Drush hooks
- Learn which hooks are called at what stage of the command cycle
- View example hook annotations and method implementations
By the end of this tutorial you'll know what types of core hooks are available to you and when they are called.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
