Laravel Artisan Shortcuts

Latest Version on Packagist Total Downloads Software License Build Status StyleCI

Have you ever executed 2 or 3 artisan commands over, and over, and over in your Laravel projects? Me too! That's what prompted this package. With it, you can define "shortcuts" to bundle up those commonly used commands into short, memorable names (or long, convoluted ones, that's up to you!).


You'll have to follow a couple of simple steps to install this package.


Via composer:

$ composer require sven/artisan-shortcuts

Or add the package to your dependencies in composer.json and run composer update on the command line to download the package:

    "require": {
        "sven/artisan-shortcuts": "^1.0"

Registering the service provider

If you're not using auto-discovery, register Sven\ArtisanShortcuts\ServiceProvider::class in your config/app.php file.

Publishing the configuration file

To publish this package's configuration file, execute the following command and pick Sven\ArtisanShortcuts\ServiceProvider from the list:

$ php artisan vendor:publish


After publishing the configuration file, you can define your shortcuts in config/shortcuts.php. Knowing that, creating your own artisan shortcuts is fairly straightforward. Take a look at the following configuration:

return [
    'custom-command' => [
        FirstCommand::class => [
            '--option' => 'value',

Running php artisan custom-command will execute FirstCommand with the option --option=value, and SecondCommand without any arguments or options.

Something I use this for all the time is Barry van den Heuvel's laravel-ide-helper commands:

return [
    'ide' => [
        ModelsCommand::class => ['--nowrite' => true],

Instead of using the FQCN for the command classes, you can also use the command names:

return [
    'clear' => [
