Upping memory command line PHP memory limits so you can use Drush

UPDATE: Short and sweet the error and the fix (on Ubuntu, at least) with none of the jibber-jabber below.

ben@ebony-ubuntu:~/code/anjali/drupal$ drush updatecode

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home/ben/code/anjali/drupal/sites/all/modules/quiz/quiz.module on line 677
Drush command could not be completed. [error]

Start editing the command line php configuration (initialization) file with:
sudo vi /etc/php5/cli/php.ini

What Drupal Needs: Drush with Dependencies

Drupal needs smarter packaging scripts.

If you get a module that depends on another module, they should both be delivered to you (and so forth).

But to do this Drupal needs to know what's on your system, so you have to be initiating the transfer from within Drupal. Drush could do this fairly securely.

We need to encourage the lots of small modules approach that everyone loves from the development and extensibility side, but which the difficulty of developing, maintaining, and using can drag down.

Drush notes from Moshe's lightning talk

Another module by Arto Bendiken
install Drush module


command line:
php ./drush.php help

Boost actually comes with some Drush commands, but they're out of date

If you are a lazy developer [and most of us are]
you will like drush

php ./drush.php pm install boost

(I'm connected to the site which is not the best place to demo stuff, but I think this is safe)

It went and found the latest release from update status, and went and installed it into

Drush: a love story

Thanks to Moshe Weitzman at the latest Drupal Groups Boston meetup, Agaric was introduced, formally, to Drush. Although our paths had crossed in the crowds of modules before, this time it was love at first site.

Here's the first date.

Checked out Drush to the sites/all/modules directory. We expect this to be the last time we have to do this!
