Using Symfony framework developers can create various types of commands which can be executed by consoles. Symfony already provides lots of console commands, Like
php app/console cache:clear or
php bin/console doctrine:mapping:import --force AcmeBlogBundle xml.
Now if we want to create a command like those for our own, like running cron jobs or export database using a command etc this post can help us to set up a simple command.
Say, we have an Application bundle named
SmsBundle. We need to define our command class under
Command namespace in the
SmsBundle and the file should have
Command in the end.
So, for the
SendSms will have to maintain the following structure
// this is the file structure of the command file // src/SmsBundle/Command/SendSmsCommand.html"takinginputsandshowingoutputs">Taking inputs and Showing Outputs

Here is an example how to configure these methods in the following code snippet
Here, we can see the process how to take inputs from console and show the proper output in console. Also we added the configuring code in the snippet. I hope the comments can be very helpful to understand the code.
Running the Command
Now it's time to run our custom command. Let's see how we will be running our codes.
$ php app/console sms:send +8801413981571 Hello SMS from Symfony Command. Sending a SMS to the number -> +8801413981571 ----##--------##---- SMS Sent -> +8801413981571. with a message: Hello SMS from Symfony Command.
Hello SMS from Symfony Command.are the two arguments or inputs which we defined in the
You can look the code snippet from gist.
Now you can use it to create any command in Symfony, enjoy!
