Magento Console

This script will provide an interactive console similar to rails console if you're familiar with Ruby on Rails.

In order to use this, you need to have php-cli installed with readline support.

Requirements

PHP >= 4.2.3 w/ libreadline support

Installation

Using modman.

Or

  1. Download the shell/console.php and shell/console files into the shell folder in your Magento root.
  2. Make the console script executable with chmod +x shell/console.

Usage

To run the console, simply execute ./shell/console from the root of your Magento project. Now you can run all sorts of Magento code from the shell:

franklin@ubuntu:/var/www$ ./shell/console
Interactive shell

php > $user = Mage::getModel('admin/user')->load(1);
php > print_r($user->getData());
