Basic install file for a deployment module

July 30, 2014

Here is a typical .install file for site deployment modules:

/**
 * @file
 * Incremental and initial deployment code.
 */

/**
 * Implements hook_install().
 * See http://dcycleproject.org/blog/43/run-all-update-hooks-install-hook
 */
function mysite_deploy_install() {
  for ($i = 7001; $i < 8000; $i++) {
    $candidate = 'mysite_deploy_update_' . $i;
    if (function_exists($candidate)) {
      $candidate();
    }
  }
}

/**
 * Disable Overlay
 */
function mysite_deploy_update_7001() {
  // some people don't like overlay...
  module_disable(array('overlay'));
}

/**
 * Install & Enable Admin_Menu
 */
function mysite_deploy_update_7002() {
  module_enable(array('admin_menu_toolbar'));
  module_disable(array('toolbar'));
}
