Magento 2: Command Line Interface Reference


M2 utilises CLI (command line interface) commands heavily from using composer to install modules and keep things updated to clearing the cache, switching in and out of production mode and that sort of thing.  This is very new for a Magento 1 developer like myself so it is time to start documenting all of this. Here is a list of the all the standard bin/magento commands, plus a few extra bits and pieces that have proved useful.

Call command line functions, from your magento2 root directory, using

bin/magento [command]

e.g.  bin/magento cache:status
