Download Drupal 8 using Drush

Submitted by Stijn Stroobants on Thu, 09/10/2015 - 21:58

Since we're using Drush, the easiest way to get started with a new Drupal-installation was by downloading the core with the following Drush-command:

drush dl drupal

This installs the latest stable Drupal 7 release.

Since Drupal 8 is out as a beta-release we can download the latest Drupal 8 release with the following command:

drush dl drupal-8

If you would like to choose which version to download, you can get an overview of the releases by typing the following command:

drush dl drupal-8 --select --all

This will output an overview like this which allows you to choose which version to download:
Drush Drupal 8
