About

Terminus is Pantheon's Command Line Interface (CLI), providing at least equivalent functionality to the Pantheon's browser-based Dashboard and easier scripting.

If you would like to contribute, pull requests are welcome!

The Manual

Our documentation is kept in the Terminus Manual, located here: https://pantheon.io/docs/terminus

Dependencies

Required

Once you have at least the requirements installed, you can install Terminus via Composer or Git. Additionally, you may want to install the optional software below to enhance your use of Terminus:

Recommended

  • Composer
  • Drush (Useful to run incompatible-with-Terminus Drush commands)
  • WP-CLI (Useful to run incompatible-with-Terminus WP-CLI commands)
  • Git

You can install Terminus just about anywhere on your system. In this README, we'll use /install/location to stand in for your chosen installation location.

Installation

Installing via the Terminus installer

Run this in your Terminal client:

curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pantheon-systems/terminus-installer/master/builds/installer.phar && php installer.phar install

For more information on installation options or to report an issue with this method, please see the Terminus Installer README.md file.

Installing with Composer

Run this in your terminal client:

cd /install/location ; composer require pantheon-systems/terminus

If you are having issues installing, please see to it that any old versions of Terminus are removed by using

composer remove pantheon-systems/terminus

before requiring it.

Installing with Homebrew (for Macs)

This only installs stable versions of Terminus, and will install the latest 0.13.x release until 1.0 is out of beta. If you do not have homebrew-php already tapped, here are the commands for the taps:

brew tap homebrew/dupes ; brew tap homebrew/versions ; brew tap homebrew/php

And after you're all tapped out, install Terminus with this command:

brew install homebrew/php/terminus

Installing with Git

To install with Git and use Terminus HEAD, you should clone this repository and run Terminus directly. If you would like to contribute to the Terminus source, this is the way you should install it. You will require Composer for this installation.

  • Clone the repository. If you plan on contributing to the project, create a fork and clone the fork instead:
cd /install/location ; git clone https://github.com/pantheon-systems/terminus.git terminus
  • Install the Composer dependencies:
cd terminus ; composer install

You can now run the bleeding-edge version of Terminus via:

bin/terminus

Updating

Updating via the Terminus installer

Run this in your Terminal client:

curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pantheon-systems/terminus-installer/master/builds/installer.phar && php installer.phar update

For more information on update options or to report an issue with this method, please see the Terminus Installer README.md file.

Updating with Composer

Run this in your terminal client:

cd /install/location ; composer update

Updating with Homebrew (for Macs)

Update Terminus with this command:

brew upgrade homebrew/php/terminus

Updating with Git

To update with Git and use Terminus HEAD, you should update this repository and then update its dependencies via Composer.

  • Update the repository:
cd /install/location/terminus ; git pull
  • Update the Composer dependencies:
composer update

Optionally, for ease of development, we suggest aliasing or setting the path bash configuration file, or symlinking to it. This file is located at ~/.bashrc on Linux systems and at ~/.bash_profile on Mac.

Alias

alias terminus="/install/location/terminus/bin/terminus"

Once you source the file or restart your terminal client, you can now make use of Terminus using

terminus

Exporting the Path

export PATH="$PATH:/install/location/terminus/bin"

Once you source the file or restart your terminal client, you can now make use of Terminus using

terminus

Symlinking

Adding a symlink to /install/location/terminus/bin/terminus inside your bin directory will work.

Authentication

To get started with Terminus, you must first authenticate:

terminus auth:login --machine_token=xxxxxxxx
[notice] Logging in via machine token

If you are planning to run WP-CLI or Drush commands through Terminus, please upload an SSH key for the user that will be executing Terminus.

Running

Commands in Terminus follow a predictable pattern:

terminus command:subcommand:subcommand param param --option=value --option
  • terminus is the name of the application.
  • command[:subcommand[:subcommand]] is the name of the command to run. Terminus commands may consist of only a command.
  • param are parameters, and are almost always required for operating the command.
  • option are options, and are never required to run a command. They may or may not require a value.

Runtime Configuration

Setting default user, site, environment, etc. and Dotenv

Terminus can use certain environment variables to set certain default values when invoking commands. Check the config/constants.yml file for the names of variables which can be set. Do not alter this file - add global settings to your ~/.terminus/config.yml file or export them in your terminal client.

Terminus also has built-in support for PHP Dotenv, which provides an alternative to manually exporting environment variables. This involves defining environment variables within a .env file that Terminus will automatically use when invoked within that working directory.

Known Issues/Limitations

  • Terminus will not offer you options for selection when parameters are not provided. This will be added in the future.

Developing & Contributing

  1. See the CONTRIBUTING document.
  2. Create an issue on this repository to discuss the change you propose should be made.
  3. Fork this repository.
  4. Clone the forked repository.
  5. Run composer install at the repository root directory to install all necessary dependencies.
  6. Make changes to the code.
  7. Run the test suite. The tests must pass before any code will be accepted.
  8. Commit your changes and push them up to your fork.
  9. Open a pull request on this repository to merge your fork.

Your pull request will be reviewed by Pantheon and changes may be requested before the code is accepted.

Testing

Tests are run via the .scripts/test.sh script. Components thereof can be run as follows:

  • composer cs runs the code sniffer to ensure all code is appropriately formatted.
  • composer phpunit runs the PHPUnit unit tests.
  • composer behat runs the Behat feature tests

Support

Please make ready the steps to reproduce the issue, outputs, pertinent information about your system, and what you believe the correct reaction of the system ought to be. Reporting of issues encountered should happen in one of two ways:

Information that helps us help you

If we cannot duplicate an issue, we cannot resolve it. Giving us as much information about the problem you're having as you can will help reduce the amount of time between an issue's being reported and being resolved. This is typically the most helpful information:

  • The result of running terminus self:info.
  • The output of the issue in debug mode. (Run the command with --vvv appended to it.)

If yours is a problem with Terminus itself:

  1. Search Terminus' issues on GitHub to see whether another user has reported the same issue you are experiencing.
  2. If the problem you are experiencing is not in the issues, you can open a new issue. Please include the helpful information you have gathered.
  3. If you find your problem in an issue, feel free to add your issue information in the comments and/or subscribe to the issue's notifications.

If the problem is with the Pantheon platform

Head over to your support tickets in the Pantheon Dashboard and submit a new issue ticket. Please include the helpful information you have gathered.

Managing Third-Party Libraries

Dependencies are easily updated by Composer. To update this codebase:

  1. Check Gemnasium (see the button under the status heading above) to see if there are dependencies requiring an update.
  2. Check out a new branch off of an up-to-date copy of master.
  3. Run composer update at the repository root directory.
  4. Run the test suite. If there are errors, address them.
  5. Commit the changes, push the branch, and create a pull request for the update.

Deployment

To deploy a new version of Terminus:

  1. Ensure that the version numbers atop CHANGELOG.md and in config/constants.yml are updated to the new version.
  2. Create a release in GitHub.
  3. Copy all CHANGELOG.md entries for the new version into the description of the release.
  4. Tag the new release with its version number.
  5. Release it. It will become automatically available to the public via Packagist and the Terminus Installer.

Debugging

  • Run Terminus with the -vvv option to get debug output.
  • If you are getting PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'ReflectionException' ..., install php-xml.
  • If you are getting cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: ..., download a cacert.pem file and add curl.cainfo = "[path_to_file]\cacert.pem" to your php.ini. If using XAMPP, you can add this to your xampp\php\extras\ssl directory.
