The Sf2gen namespace will be used for a future project. Sf2genConsoleBundle will be a little part of it. Sf2genConsoleBundle give you the possibility to be able to execute a console command direclty from your application. The interface is loaded with the same way than the WebProfilerBundle.


  • Command autocompletion
  • Command history

Use it

Instead of typing php app/console list, you will just have to type list. The dot is an alias for list.

Have a look :





  1. Add this bundle to your vendor/ dir:

    $ git submodule add git://github.com/RapotOR/ConsoleBundle.git vendor/bundles/Sf2gen/Bundle/ConsoleBundle

  2. Add the Sf2gen namespace to your autoloader:

    // app/autoload.php $loader->registerNamespaces(array( 'Sf2gen' => DIR.'/../vendor/bundles', // other namespaces ));

  3. Add this bundle to your application's kernel, in the debug section:

    // app/ApplicationKernel.php public function registerBundles() { $bundles = array( // all bundles );

       if (in_array($this->getEnvironment(), array('dev', 'test'))) {
           // previous bundles like WebProfilerBundle
           $bundles[] = new Sf2gen\Bundle\ConsoleBundle\Sf2genConsoleBundle();
       return $bundles;


  4. Add the following ressource to your routing_dev.yml:

    // app/config/routing_dev.yml _sf2gencdt: resource: "@Sf2genConsoleBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml" prefix: /_sf2gencdt

  5. You have to disable the firewall if you use the security component:


    security: firewalls: sf2gen: pattern: /_sf2gencdt/.* security: false

  6. Here is the full configuration:


    sf2gen_console: new_process: true # use a new shell process to launch the command toolbar: true # display the toolbar in the current application ; to be disabled to use it in a third application. local: true # add the current application to list of available apps ; if false, the current application is excluded. all: false # will add all apps with a console available without using apps in configuration. env: %kernel.environment% #the env used for the kernel setup apps: # use this to have a well defined list. - app - symfony-standard
