How to customize Magento 2 commands?

Updated 30 April 2018

Whenever we update something in Magento 2 we need to run different commands which are quite lengthy and while writing them we may have some typo errors as well.  To short/customize Magento 2 commands you can alias all your required commands. But the drawback is, it saves these aliases in the current terminal session only. To overcome this drawback we have a solution for it.

In your home directory, you’ll have ~/.bashrc and .bash_aliases hidden files. To make permanent changes you can write your aliases separately in ~/.bash_aliases file and it will be read automatically whenever a new session starts. For this, your ~/.bashrc file should have the following-

if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then
. ~/.bash_aliases

~/.bashrc file will already have the above-mentioned code. It means if you have a file ~/.bash_aliases file then it will be sourced and all the aliases written in it will be applied in the current terminal session. If you don’t have ~/.bash_aliases file you can create it manually.

Here, you can find the list of some Magento commands which I have aliased and run the customized command to get the desired output.

Example- I have used alias cf=”php bin/magento cache:flush” so whenever I’ll run cf in the Magento root directory complete cache flush command will run.
