Drush is a command line shell and Unix scripting interface for Drupal. Drush core ships with lots of useful commands for interacting with code like modules/themes/profiles. Similarly, it runs update.php, executes SQL queries and DB migrations, and misc utilities like run cron or clear cache. Developers love the
generate command, which jump starts your coding project by writing ready-to-customize PHP and YML files. Drush can be extended by 3rd party commandfiles.
