Recommended Posts

You can find here the release of wire-cli, successor to wire shell, a powerful command-line interface (CLI) tool designed specifically for ProcessWire developers. Optimize your workflow, automate repetitive tasks, and manage your ProcessWire projects with ease.

Wire-cli leverages the Symfony Console Component to provide a robust CLI experience, offering a wide range of features and commands to enhance your development process. From creating new projects and managing fields, templates, roles, and users, to performing database backups and serving your ProcessWire projects with a built-in web-server.

Still in development, there might be some glitch, I will continuously improve and expand its functionality based on the feedback and needs of the ProcessWire community. Also mentioning that we will be probably working towards merging the features of wire-cli and rockshell to provide a unified CLI solution for ProcessWire.

To get started with wire-cli, check out the GitHub repository or simply install it now from your terminal using Composer:

composer global require wirecli/wire-cli

Contributions are welcome. If you encounter any issues or have suggestions for improvements, please submit an issue, a pull request or post it here.

Sounds super cool! The wire shell project was one of the greatest tools in the PW ecosystem. Glad it is reborn!

Especially great to hear that there are plans to work on a unified solution with @bernhard's RockShell. A true community spirit! AFAIK RockShell has a lot of Rock*-specific stuff. So maybe need to think about the expandable architecture right away?

Would love to test and contribute.

P.S. Can't save wire shell in a single word. Is there some smart spell checking and correction going on now and how do I get around it, @Pete)))

Looking forward to using this, but I am running into issues. What am I missing?

After installing globally, I get

Using version ^1.4 for wirecli/wire-cli

Then when I try an run it.

wire-cli: command not found

I'm not sure what you mean by that? RockShell is extendable by design. You can place your own commands either in /site/assets or in /site/modules/YourModule/RockShell/Commands/

A simple command is as simple as that:

class HelloWorld extends Command
{
  public function handle()
  {
    $this->write("Hello World!");
    return self::SUCCESS;
  }
}

Docs are here https://www.baumrock.com/en/processwire/modules/rockshell/docs/custom/ , it's actively developed (https://github.com/baumrock/RockShell/releases) and contributions are welcome.

It can be confusing as the readme contain a typo in the given example, the right command is the shorter, without a dash: `wirecli

@flydevThanks, but still getting the same:

Verified its installed:
wirecli/wire-cli                 1.4.11  An extendable ProcessWire command line interface

Command:
wirecli -help

Output:
wirecli: command not found

You can probably find the executable file from /home/<username>/.config/composer/vendor/bin -folder so running /home/<username>/.config/composer/vendor/bin/wirecli should work. If you want to use it without the path you should add that path to your shell $PATH-variable.

Ran into the exact same problem a few minutes ago.

Verified the [home] of composer with this:

composer config --list --global

And finally added it to my $PATH in .bashrc

export PATH="$PATH:~/.config/composer/vendor/bin"
