Adding modules and themes with drush

Adding new modules couldn't be easier with drush.

List modules on site

First, let's see what modules are loaded on our site:

cd [site document root]
drush pml

Install a new module

Now let's install a new module:

sudo drush dl views # downloads and puts in sites/all/modules
sudo drush en views # enables it

Note that this also gives the opportunity to install required dependencies.

Follow the same steps for a theme. The above will handle multiple projects by putting more than one name on the command line:

sudo drush dl views feeds # downloads and puts the 2 in sites/all/modules
sudo drush en views feeds # enables the 2

Use 'drush dis' to disable (un-enable) and 'drush pm-uninstall' to uninstall project(s).
