Create a new console command¶
The "Make" extension can be used to create a new console command:
You will be prompted with a list of installed extensions. If your newly created extension is missing, check if you installed it properly.
Enter the command name to execute on CLI [myextension:dosomething]:
This name will be used to call the command later on. It should be prefixed with your extensions name without special signs. It is considered best practise to use the same name as for the controller, in lowercase.
Should the command be schedulable? (yes/no) [no]:
If you want the command to be available in the backend in module System > Scheduler choose
yes. If it should be only callable from the console, for example if it prompts for input, choose
Have a look at the created files¶
The following files will be created or changed:
$ tree src/extensions └── my-test ├── Classes | └── Command (*) | | └── DoSomethingCommand.php (*) ├── Configuration | └── Services.yaml (*) ├── composer.json └── ext_emconf.php
Call the new command¶
After a new console command was created you have to delete the cache for it to be available, then you can call it from the command line:
vendor/bin/typo3 cache:flush vendor/bin/typo3 myextension:dosomething
typo3/sysext/core/bin/typo3 cache:flush typo3/sysext/core/bin/typo3 myextension:dosomething
You can now follow the console command tutorial and learn how to use arguments, user interaction, etc.
