Robo-tize your local Drupal 8 development

Drupal Camp Asheville 2024 - July 12th-14th

Start Time



Joe Stewart

Getting started with a new Drupal 8 project?
Tired of looking up drush site-install options, unix commands or maintaining complicated bash scripts?

We’ll use object-oriented PHP instead with Robo (, a task runner written in PHP that will help organize and automate repetitive commands.

Robo is easily extended with new commands and has included tasks for:

  • git
  • phpunit
  • ssh
  • file manipulation
  • shell execution
  • and much more

Examples will show assembling repeatable commands using Robo, Vagrant and Drush to help speed up local Drupal 8 development processes. This session will be good for freelance developers to those in large organizations.
