Describes how to manage the extension from an administrator’s point of view. That relates to Page/User TSconfig, permissions, configuration etc., which administrator level users have access to.
Language should be non/semi-technical, explaining, using small examples.
Target group: Administrators, Developers
There are two ways to properly install the extension. Using git to clone the the repository is deprecated and most likely will not work any more in the near future.
1. Composer installation¶
In case you use Composer to manage dependencies of your TYPO3 project, you can just issue the following Composer command in your project root directory:
composer require helhum/typo3-console
In case you are unsure how to create a Composer based TYPO3 project, you can check out this TYPO3 distribution, which already provides TYPO3 Console integration.
2. Non Composer installation¶
For the extension to work, it must be installed in the directory not in any other possible extension location. This is the default location when downloading it from TER with the Extension Manager.
In order for it to work properly in not installed TYPO3 (extracted sources,
extension is placed in
typo3conf/ext/), the following binary must be executed:
It is a PHP binary like the
typo3 binary, thus, if you need a dedicated PHP binary
to be used, put it in front like so:
When your TYPO3 installation is already set up, use
typo3 extension:activate typo3_console,
to activate the extension and get all commands from it.
Shell auto complete¶
You can get shell auto completion by using the great autocomplete package. Install the package and make the binary available in your path. Please read the installation instructions of this package on how to do that.
To temporary activate auto complete in the current shell session, type
"$(symfony-autocomplete --aliases=typo3)" You can also put this into your
.bashrc file to have it always available. Auto completion is
then always dynamic and reflects the commands you have available in your TYPO3
