Make your custom Drush command more flexible by allowing users to pass command line arguments into it. For example, rather than hard-coding that the command lists users with a specific status, allow the desired status to be specified at run-time. This allows the command's logic to be more generic, and to return different results, or operate on different data, based on the provided parameters.
Parameters are variables that are passed from user input at the command line into the Drush command method. Typically, they are either single string values, or comma-delimited strings of values. Parameters are typically used to provide input for the command related to what the command should work on, in contrast to options, which are typically used to configure how the command works.
In this tutorial we'll:
- Declare parameters for a custom Drush command in its annotation
- Use the parameter input inside the custom Drush command method
By the end of this tutorial you should understand how to work with parameters inside custom Drush commands.
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
