I am trying to write a Drush script to enable a bunch of modules based on a hook. If it's already enabled, I would rather skip enabling that module.

Is there a way for Drush to return whether or not a module is enabled?


This code will list all non core enabled modules:

drush pm-list --pipe --type=module --status=enabled --no-core
  • 8
    +1; and you can even pipe the results to find command like this: drush pm-list --pipe --type=module --status=enabled --no-core | find /I "views_ui" - in this example, if "views_ui" is enabled, it returns views_ui, else it returns an empty result set (nothing). – Sk8erPeter Sep 1 '13 at 22:44
  • @Sk8erPeter grep seems more efficient for this case – MediaVince May 30 '18 at 13:40
drush pm-info

Gives status of module with additional information as given below:

drush pm-info <module_name>
