This package allows you to output to the console from outside of command class.

For example, you might have a feature that does the same thing from a command and through the web. Until now, you may have found yourself duplicating code just to be able to output to the console in various places.

With Partyline, you can use output commands within your logic. If it's being run inside the console, you'll see it. Otherwise, nothing will happen.


In your console command's handle method, bind the command into Partyline using the facade:

public function handle()

Then in your regular classes, you may call any public Illuminate\Console\Command methods on the Partyline facade, just like you would inside the command class.

// Equivalent to $this->info('foo') within your command.

Facade usage

You can either use the globally aliased facade with a slash:


Or, you can import the facade:

use Wilderborn\Partyline\Facade as Partyline;



This package can be installed through Composer.

composer require wilderborn/partyline

For Laravel 5.4 and below, register the service provider and facade:

// config/app.php
'providers' => [

'aliases' => [
    'Partyline' => Wilderborn\Partyline\Facade::class,

For Laravel 5.5+, this package will be automatically discovered.


If you have many commands classes, you may find it tedious to bind into Partyline every time. You may consider an abstract command class and bind inside the run method.

class YourCommand extends AbstractCommand
    public function handle()
class AbstractCommand extends Command
     * Run the console command.
     * @param  \Symfony\Component\Console\Input\InputInterface  $input
     * @param  \Symfony\Component\Console\Output\OutputInterface  $output
     * @return int
    public function run(InputInterface $input, OutputInterface $output)

        return parent::run($input, $output);
