Getting Started

tempest/console is a standalone package used to build console applications. Give it a ⭐️ on GitHub!

You can install tempest/console like so:

composer require tempest/console:dev-main

And run it like so:

#!/usr/bin/env php

use Tempest\Console\ConsoleApplication;

require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';



tempest/console uses on Tempest's discovery to find and register console commands. That means you don't have to register any commands manually, and any method within your codebase using the #[ConsoleCommand] attribute will automatically be discovered by your console application.

use Tempest\Console\Console;
use Tempest\Console\ConsoleCommand;

final readonly class InteractiveCommand
    public function __construct(private Console $console) {}

    public function __invoke(): void
        $this->console->writeln('Hello World!');

Tempest will discover all console commands within namespaces configured as composer PSR-4 autoload namespaces, as well as all third-party packages that require Tempest.

"autoload": {
    "psr-4": {
        "App\\": "app/"

In case you need more fine-grained control over which directories to discover, you can provide a custom AppConfig instance to the ConsoleApplication::boot() method:

use Tempest\AppConfig;

// …

$appConfig = new AppConfig(
    discoveryLocations: [
        new DiscoveryLocation('App\\', __DIR__ . '/app/')

ConsoleApplication::boot(appConfig: $appConfig)->run();
