Commands use the helpfull console Symfony component. In your module you can define you own command that can be used with command CLI.

To create a Command in Thelia just create a new class that extend Thelia\Command\ContainerAwareCommand and create these functions:

  • configure() to give a name and optionally a description and parameters
  • execute() where go the code to execute

namespace MyModule\Commands;

use Symfony\Component\Console\Input\InputInterface;
use Symfony\Component\Console\Output\OutputInterface;

use Thelia\Command\ContainerAwareCommand;

class HelloWorld extends ContainerAwareCommand
protected function configure()
->setDescription("output hello world");

protected function execute(InputInterface $input, OutputInterface $output)
$output->writeln("Hello world !");

You can now test the results using Thelia CLI tools. Go to your Thelia root directory and use this command :

php Thelia hello:world

Thelia uses all the features of the Symfony “command” component, so you can refer to this component documentation to create your Thelia commands.
