I have been a Drupal site builder for some time, but I kind of got started with it backwards. Recently, I have begun learning more server-end things like Drush, Git, etc. I'm playing around with a Digital Cloud virtual server, and I'm not having a problem per se, but I have found at least 4 ways to install Drush:
- Through Pear
- Through apt-get
- Through Composer
- By downloading the files straight from Github
(If it matters, I am on a Debian environment.)
It seems that Pear may be the preferred way from what I can tell, but that's just based on the fact that I found that to be recommended slightly more frequently than the other methods.
Is this just a matter of preference? I admit I am not very familiar with Pear and Composer. Or is there a method that most devs consider to be a best practice?
