Fun with Bash and Drupal 8

Now that everybody’s looking into virtualization, VMs, and even containers to speed up devs, I wanted to step back a little and go back to the basics by creating a simple bash script to set up a dummy Drupal 8 environment on Linux or Mac OS. Since only Drush 8 is compatible with Drupal 8 anyway, this is by far the easiest and quickest way to set up a sandbox site without installing any additional package or tool.

Check out the drupal-8-tools repo (under provisioning) and feel free to fork or contribute. Enjoy!
