Where have I been? Saving time with Drush?
It's been a few months since I blogged. I've been busy. In addition to working on a few new websites, I've also been writing a new app.
In the next few weeks, I should have some alphas up for testing on Drupal.org. It's not a module... it's a desktop application that brings the power of Drush to the Window's, Mac, or Linux environments with a graphical user interface.
The challenge has been Windows, so that's what I tackled first. And that means that the first releases will actually be Windows only, but support for Linux and Mac will be trivial. So what are the features?
- Easy to install, just run the setup file
- Easy to configure, just type in your remote connection's settings
- Supports and saves multiple connections, no need for tricky "Drush Alias" files
- Local Drush installation is NOT required
- Works with Drush 3.3 and any version of Drupal
- Run Cron, re-index your search, check status, download/enable modules, update your site, export your database, run bootstrapped PHP scripts, and more coming soon!
- 100% open source based on Flex 4.1 SDK
I apologize for all the bolding in this post, I'm just excited. Screen shots should be up within a few days. Once this thing is on Drupal.org, I hope I can get some contributors to add features.
