Create your owns Commands

The official documentation from PrestaShop and Symfony Core teams are still right, but you needs to extends our class.


// psr-4 autoloader

namespace FOP\Console\Commands\Domain; // e.g. namespace FOP\Console\Commands\Configuration

use FOP\Console\Command;
use Symfony\Component\Console\Style\SymfonyStyle;
use Symfony\Component\Console\Input\InputInterface;
use Symfony\Component\Console\Output\OutputInterface;

final class DomainAction extends Command
     * {@inheritdoc}
    protected function configure()
            ->setName('fop:domain') // e.g 'fop:export'
            // or
            ->setName('fop:domain:action') // e.g 'fop:configuration:export' 
            ->setDescription('Describe the command on a user perspective.');

     * {@inheritdoc}
    protected function execute(InputInterface $input, OutputInterface $output)
        $this->io->text('Hello friends of PrestaShop!');

        return 0; // return 0 on success or 1 on failure.

Getting started
