Getting Started

Working with project issues

If you want to use this to generate patches that you can contribute back to a Drupal project, it's best to work within a cloned repo of that project. To get instructions for cloning a project's repo, visit the "Version Control" tab on the project page.

From within the directory of the project we're working on:

  • drupalorg issue:apply [issue number] - Create a new branch for the given issue, apply the latest patch on the issue to the new branch, then commit the changes locally.
  • drupalorg issue:patch [issue number] - Create a new patch for the given issue from the changes committed locally.


Installing and running from source

  1. Clone the repository
  2. In the drupalorg-cli directory, run composer install
  3. Run the script with ./drupalorg
