The Doctrine Console is a Command Line Interface tool for simplifying common tasks during the development of a project that uses Doctrine PHPCR-ODM. It is built on the Symfony Console Component
If you have not set up the console yet, take a look at the :ref:`Console Setup Section <installation_configuration_console>`.
There are many commands, for example to import and export data, modify data in the repository, query or dump data from the repository or work with PHPCR workspaces.
Run the console without any arguments to see a list of all commands. The commands are self documenting. See the next section how to get help.
PHPCR-ODM specific commands start with
doctrine:. The commands that
start with only
phpcr: come from the phpcr-utils and are not specific
to Doctrine PHPCR-ODM.
If you use the PHPCR-ODM bundle in Symfony2, all commands will be prefixed
Getting documentation of a command
./vendor/bin/phpcrodm on the command line and you should see an
overview of the available commands or use the --help flag to get
information on the available commands. If you want to know more
about the use of the register command for example, call:
./vendor/bin/phpcrodm help doctrine:phpcr:register-system-node-types
PHPCR implementation specific commands
Jackrabbit specific commands
If you are using jackalope-jackrabbit, you also have a command to start and stop the jackrabbit server:
jackalope:run:jackrabbitStart and stop the Jackrabbit server
Doctrine DBAL specific commands
If you are using jackalope-doctrine-dbal, you have a command to initialize the database:
jackalope:init:dbalPrepare the database for Jackalope Doctrine DBAL
Register system node types
This command needs to be run once on a new repository to prepare it for use with the PHPCR-ODM. Failing to do so will throw you errors when you try to store a document that uses a node type different from nt:unstructured, like a file or folder.
Adding your own commands
You can also add your own commands on-top of the Doctrine supported tools by adding them to your binary.
To include a new command in the console, either build your own console file
bin/phpcrodm.php into your project and add things as needed.
