One of the most powerful features of Magento 2, is its ability to support a plethora of administrative tasks via the Command Line Interface (CLI). Tasks are normally quicker to execute this way and it acts as a safety net if you’re having problems with the backend interface.
However, the CLI can be very daunting and confusing to anyone who has not yet used it before. And that’s because of the extreme lack of any icons, windows and mouse.
In this mini-series, I’d like to take you on a journey that will break down some of the mystery behind the CLI and how to use it safely. By the end of the series it’s my hope that you’ll have gained some knowledge and confidence that encourages you to have a go yourself.
As a final note, this series isn’t supposed to teach you how to become a system administrator. It’s only to you help feel more comfortable using Magento.
I’d like to know if there is anything that you’d like me to cover during the series. Whether it be how to carry out a task or some general questions. It would also be good to get a feel for how you perceive the CLI. Is it intimidating? Does it make you curious? Do you think you’d benefit from it? etc…
I’d like to start recording in the next few weeks, so there’s plenty of time to think about it.
Thanks for your time
