This bundle provides a simple way of autocompleting your commands in your shell.


If you are following symfony-standard deps you can do this:


If not then just download the bundle and put it under the Knp/ namespace or

If you use git submodules:

git submodule add vendor/bundles/Knp/Bundle/ConsoleAutocompleteBundle

Then, like for any other bundle, include it in your Kernel class:

public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
        // enable third-party bundles
        new Knp\Bundle\ConsoleAutocompleteBundle\KnpConsoleAutocompleteBundle(),

        // register your bundles


The first time you install ConsoleAutocompleteBundle in a project, you should add Resources/Shells/symfony2-completion.bash in your bash profile (in ~/.bash_profile on MacOS and ~/.bashrc on Ubuntu Debian or other linux):

source /path-to-symfony2-completion.bash

That's it! Now when you type:

./app/console doc[TAB], you should see an autocompletion of the command name.

./app/console doctrine:fixtures:load --[TAB], you should see an autocompletion of the option names.

Valid executable names are:

  • console
  • Symfony

If none of these names do it for you, you can enable completion for your own executable. Add this line to your bash profile, just below where you sourced symfony2-completion.bash:

complete -F _console my-console-name
