Using drush for Drupal site Backup/Restore and Migration

‘Drush’, or the “Drupal Shell,” is one of the Drupal administrator’s best friends. Its many command line tools allow a user to log into a web server and perform routine tasks such as applying updates, block users, or even “bootstrap” a brand new Drupal installation. The drush application provides a useful “archive” utility, as well as a corresponding “restore” command.

Atom 1.12 released

Atom 1.12 has shipped today with another helping of fixes and improvements.

New APIs available in Chrome 52 allowed us to take on this long-requested feature. The new APIs turned out to be less important than we originally thought but we’re nonetheless happy to report Atom users in all locales now get typical keyboard behavior in Atom’s default installation.

The whole upgrade was a fun project with some very cool results, so we wanted to share it with you.TimelineIt all started as a hackday project in the fall of 2015. @oli and @trav got Tumblr running on one of the PHP 7 release candidates. At this point in time, quite a few PHP extensions did not have support for version 7 yet, but there were unofficial forks floating around with (very) experimental support. Nevertheless, it actually ran!This spring, things were starting to get more stable and we decided it was time to start looking in to upgrading more
