Contao Exec

Tests Version on packagist.org

This package allows to execute PHP code in the context of a Contao application, directly from the command line.

It provides two ways to do so:

  • A PsySH-based REPL for tinkering around or getting some quick insight into the state of your Contao project.

  • An eval command to get results of a program in a certain data exchange format β€” useful for getting access to data from outside of Contao.

Installation

composer require loilo/contao-exec-bundle

Usage

REPL

You can open up the REPL with the debug:repl command:

vendor/bin/contao-console debug:repl

This will throw you into a nice REPL with the Contao framework loaded, all models, DCAs etc. available.

Also, the db() helper will be loaded into the namespace automatically if you have it installed, so you can do some quick fiddling right away:

// Get the URL to the newest page
db()->from('page')->asModel()->orderBy('id', 'desc')->first()->getAbsoluteUrl()

As usual, all options are available via

vendor/bin/contao-console help debug:repl

Eval

The contao:eval command takes some PHP code, passes it to the REPL and outputs the result.

If you're using the terminal manually, you probably want to use debug:repl instead. However, contao:eval can be a great tool to access Contao data from other processes (e.g. Node.js) etc.

Therefore, it does not only have the default dump output formatting for human-readable data but also some others, including json:

# Get ID and title of the newest page as a JSON object
# This example requires the loilo/contao-illuminate-database-bundle to be installed
vendor/bin/contao-console contao:eval 'db()\
  ->from("page")\
  ->select("id", "title")\
  ->orderBy("id", "desc")\
  ->first()'\
  --format json\
  --no-ansi

# > {"id":1,"title":"Home"}

Again, use vendor/bin/contao-console help contao:eval to see what's possible with different options.
