Console Commands


In the Spiral Framework, console commands allow you to perform various tasks from the command line. These tasks can range from simple operations like clearing a cache, to more complex ones like running migrations or seeding a database. Console commands are a useful tool for automating repetitive tasks and can save you time when developing and maintaining your application.

To list all available console commands use the following command:

php app.php

To get help about any specific command:

php app.php help db:table


php app.php db:table -h

You can read how to create your own commands here.


To use command aliases, simply type the abbreviated version of the command you wish to use instead of the full command name. For example, if you have a command called "send-email", you can use the alias "se" by typing "se" instead of "send-email".

# Common variant
php app.php send-email 

# Can be resolved into `send-email`
php app.php se
