Drupal Console installation

There are two ways for installing the Drupal Console. In both of them, there are two steps. These comments are for Linux or Mac machines. * Using composer  Run this command ``` $ composer global require drupal/console:@stable --prefer-dist ``` or this command if you want to keep the commands "drupal site:mode dev" and  "drupal site:mode dev" that were removed in newer releases ``` $ composer global require drupal/console:0.11.3 --prefer-dist ``` This command will install the Drupal Console in a hidden folder inside your personal folder.  For example, if your personal folder is /home/username then composer will install the Drupal Console inside /home/username/.config/composer/vendor/bin Then, run this command in your terminal to make the Drupal Console available anywhere ``` $ echo "PATH=$PATH:~/.config/.composer/vendor/bin" >> ~/.bash_profile ``` ``` $ source /.bash_profile ``` That is all, you can start to use the Drupal Console by typing ``` $ drupal ``` * By using the launcher You have to download the Drupal Console inside /usr/local/bin.  ``` $ cd /usr/local/bin ``` ``` $ curl https://drupalconsole.com/installer -L -o drupal.phar ``` ``` $ chmod +x /usr/local/bin/drupal ``` In addition, you have to add the Drupal Console each time you work over a Drupal installation ``` $ composer require drupal/console:~1.0 --prefer-dist --optimize-autoloader ``` or ``` $ composer require drupal/console:0.11.3 --prefer-dist --optimize-autoloader ``` if you want to keep "drupal site:mode" commands ### Additional commands --- To remove  ``` $ composer global remove drupal/console ``` To reconfigure the version of a specific library ``` $ composer -v require symfony/yaml:2.8.1 ``` To show the list of composer packages already globally installed ``` $ composer global show ``` References --- https://hechoendrupal.gitbooks.io/drupal-console/content/en/index.html EDIT composer global require drupal/console:~1.0 --prefer-dist --optimize-autoloader
