Console Commands

Herbie is using Console Components for creating command-line commands. Console commands can be used for any recurring task, such as cronjobs, imports, or other batch jobs. The following commands are available by the herbie command-line application.

Name Description
clear-files The clear-files command deletes asset, cache and log files from several directories.

Herbie console commands can be executed with the following syntax:

php vendor/bin/herbie

This will give you a list of all available commands. The output looks like this:

-h, --help            Display help for the given command. When no command is given display help for the list command
-q, --quiet           Do not output any message
-V, --version         Display this application version
--ansi|--no-ansi  Force (or disable --no-ansi) ANSI output
-n, --no-interaction  Do not ask any interactive question
-v|vv|vvv, --verbose  Increase the verbosity of messages: 1 for normal output, 2 for more verbose output and 3 for debug

Available commands:
clear-files  Clears asset, cache and log files
completion   Dump the shell completion script
