It is not mentioned on that documentation page, but there is a small trick which let us skip
exec. So we can save four characters every time we type a
drush command! 😎
To make it possible find the
.ddev/commands/web/drush.example file and rename or duplicate it as
.ddev/commands/web/drush. And that’s all! From now you can write
ddev drush …!
Of course, it is not my “magic” but a solution from the developers of DDEV. It is documented too – just on an other page. The note is about custom commands which provides other nice possibilities as well so it worth reading! 🙂
