      mkdir ~/drush && cd ~/drush
      composer require drush/drush:8.x-dev --prefer-source
      echo "alias drush='/usr/local/php56/bin/php ~/drush/vendor/bin/drush.php' " >> ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bash_profile
    • For Drush version 9:
      mkdir ~/drush && cd ~/drush
      composer require drush/drush:9.*
      echo "alias drush='/usr/local/php56/bin/php ~/drush/vendor/bin/drush' " >> ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bash_profile
