Drupal automation is an automatic way to fetch Drupal 7 or 8 from GitHub and setup a local Drupal version on your pc to play around. It initializes all the necessary files and folders to run along with Vagrant and Ansible that are not listed here.


In my free time, I develop web apps by using Drupal and I tend to use Vagrant and Ansible to setup everytime a new project. However, every time I have to download manually the Drupal core code, place it in a folder, setup the necessary vagrant and ansible files and then have a project ready to start.

So I created these small bash scripts that download from Drupal github repo the latest Drupal 7 or 8 code and setup all the necessary files to have a project ready to play in less than 5 minutes.

The end goal of this project is to use this as a submodule on each of my projects and update it every time with any new changes or new features.


An example of this repo in use can be found in my Drupal Vagrant repo. By its own it doesn't do too much. It needs to be set as a submodule in a Drupal project.

This project is tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and up. The necessary command that need to exist is only git.
