Drupal 8 quickstart using composer

There are benefits of using installing drupal via composer.

composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev myproj
cd myproj
# you can now add the required plugins eg
composer require drupal drupal/devel:8.*

Forget about drush, let us use the drupal console to install the site. This is the symfony way.

# let us configure the drupal command line
ln -s /path_to_myproj/vendor/drupal/console/bin/drupal /usr/local/bin/drupal
cd web
drupal site:install
