X-Cart Command Line Tool
page last edited on 03 October 2017
X-Cart command line (CLI) tool is the collection of helpful commands for your use while developing your modules. This tool is included with X-Cart starting from 188.8.131.52 version and is a direct replacement for the deprecated X-Cart SDK. It is driven by the powerful Symfony Console component.
To run the CLI tool, you should switch to the X-Cart working directory and run:
php xc5 <command> <arguments>
To run X-Cart commands from any directory, add
<your X-Cart install dir> to your system PATH.
Because shells have differing syntax, consult a reference like unix.stackexchange.com.
bash shell example for CentOS:
