Streamlining Test Module Configuration in Drupal

image

Oliver, in a recent update to his automated testing in the Drupal email course, shared an alternative method for creating test module configurations efficiently. Instead of manually writing configuration files, Oliver suggests utilizing the --destination option with the drush config: export command to export configuration to a temporary directory, bypassing the need for extensive clicking in the Drupal UI.

By directing exports to a directory ignored by Git, users can then use the Linux find command to locate and copy relevant configuration files into their test module directory. This streamlined approach minimizes manual labor and enhances productivity, demonstrating a practical solution for Drupal developers seeking efficient testing workflows.
