Get List of Symfony Console Commands

Get List of Symfony Console Commands

Symfony console commands provide a powerful and flexible way to interact with the Symfony applications through the command line interface (CLI). Every Symfony application is equipped with an extensive array of commands. These commands cover a wide range of functionalities, allowing developers to perform various tasks. This tutorial explains how to get a list of Symfony console commands.

The most straightforward way to get a list of available Symfony console commands is by using the bin/console command without any additional arguments. The same output can be achieved by adding list argument because list is the default command.

php bin/console
php bin/console list

Output example:

  command [options] [arguments]

  -h, --help            Display help for the given command...

Available commands:
  about                       Display information about the current project
  completion                  Dump the shell completion script
  help                        Display help for a command
  list                        List commands
  assets:install              Install bundle's web assets under a public directory

Symfony allows you to filter commands based on their namespace. For example, if you want to see commands specifically related to your application, you can use:

php bin/console list app

This will display only the commands within the app namespace, making it easier to manage and explore commands related to the project.
