Custom Commands

Plugins can add their commands to the CLI application, by adding command class name via 'commands','cli' hoook. Command class must extend \Symfony\Component\Console\Command\Command.

class MyCommand extends \Symfony\Component\Console\Command\Command {}

elgg_register_plugin_hook_handler('commands', 'cli', function($hook, $type, $return) {
	$return[] = MyCommand::class;
	return $return;
