Work­ing my way into dru­pal and par­tic­u­larly dru­pal 7 and have stum­bled across druch the com­mand line tool. Pretty awesome .

With all the mod­ules for Dru­pal it can be hard to work out what you want but here is a selec­tion of some of the essen­tial ones you will need.

One thing that puz­zled me ini­tially was that as the  list you sup­ply to drush is space delim­ited how do you name a mod­ule like Chaos Tool Suite? The answer is you need the machine name. This is the inter­nal Dru­pal name for the mod­ule and must be  unique, alphanu­meric and under­scores but no spaces. To get this click the mod­ule you require and then look at the last item in the result­ing url.

So Chaos tool suite become ctools and that is what you use with drush
