In drupal 7 I used to just do a drush vset theme to change the theme in the command line, but that doesnt work in drupal 8 anymore. How would one change the theme in the command line for drupal 8 using drush?


you can do the following:

drush config-set system.theme default bartik

Here are the commands for drupal 8 using drush. Its called "config" now:

Config commands: (config)

 config-edit (cedit)   Open a config file in a text editor. Edits are imported into active configuration after closing editor.
