I may be thinking about this the wrong way, but I would like to download a feature that is already created. I know how to create a feature and download it, but how do you download a feature that already exists so you can use it on another site? Preferably in Drush.

I'm using Drupal 7.50. Thanks!

Edit: I figured out that in the UI, if you create "recreate", you can download it from there. How can this be done in drush though?

You can use my very favorite drush command:

drush fu your_feature

This is the same as using "recreate" in the UI except that it will update your feature directly where it resides in your code base (usually at /sites/all/modules/your_feature).

Now you can copy that folder (or zip it up if you like) and use it on any site you'd like.
