Using Drupal Console

Drupal Console is a tool to generate boilerplate code, interact with, and debug Drupal.

Please refer to the official Drupal Console docs for usage details.

Setup

Drupal Console is expected to be installed as a project level dependency via Composer.

# Change directory to Drupal site
cd /path/to/drupal8

# Download DrupalConsole
composer require drupal/console:~1.0 --prefer-dist --optimize-autoloader

A global Drupal Console Launcher is installed in the cli container and will pass the execution to the project level binary.

Usage

From the host via fin:

fin drupal --version

From with the cli container (fin bash) drush can be called directly:

drupal --version
