$cd /path/to/drupal/root
$drush dl <module_name>
$drush en <module_name>

On working remote

The last company I worked for, did have an office space, but the code was all on Github, infra on AWS, we tracked issues over Asana and more or less each person had at least one project they could call "their own" (I had a bunch of them ;-)). This worked pretty well. And it gave me a feeling that working remote would not be very different from this. So when we started working on our own startup, we started with working from our homes. It looked great at first. I could now spend more time with Mom and could work at leisure. However, it is not as good as it looks like.

After some searching and some stroke of genius, here's how I accomplished capturing stdout.

I felt helpless, somewhat creepy, and a sudden chill went down my spine. I didn't know what to do. I wanted to just run away. Run away from her. Run away from this world. Run away to some distant place where I could be myself. Some place where I could cry to my heart's content. But I was not one of those who would leave the ground, wounded! I had always been the one who took life head on. So was it the time to lean back and contemplate what actually went wrong? No. That won't be the man, the world knew! So.. was it the time to build a castle around my feelings and play cold? ~ Prince Mishra
