Exec Widget Overview

Dashboard widget that runs php exec in a task.

Configuring Exec Widget

You need a config file, config/execWidget.php. That file defines the different commands that can be run.

Sample configuration file (note that the usual multi-environment config works here too):


return [
  'commands' => [
    // each command has the name it will be displayed with
    // and the command line
    'Do the Thing' => './bin/ --quiet',
    'Another Thing' => './bin/',

Using Exec Widget

Add the widget to the dashboard, and configure it with instructions and choosing the command. The Do it button will launch a task to run the command. Command output will be captured in the queue.log log. Search for ExecWidget Task to find output.
