Drool is a command-line tool that automates the mundane tasks of managing Drupal Web sites on a server and also offers a few more novel features. It can create new sites, install modules and themes directly from drupal.org, and clone one Drupal site to another.
Drool helps you rapidly design themes by automatically skinning images (i.e. chopping and slicing them up for CSS scaling) onto regions of a theme.
Download and unpack drupal to some web-accessibly directory, like '/somedir/drool', so that the drupal path is like this: '/somedir/drool/drupal-5.5'.
Download the source file, uncompress it, enter the folder and run:
$sudo python setup.py install
Edit the file /etc/drool.conf and set appropriate values for your server.
