New Drupal Console release and a WIP Documentation

By Jesus Manuel Olivas ● Head of Products | January 14th, 2015

A new release was published today v0.6.2 this new release include bug fixes and new features that I will mention in this blog post.

Support for new field types on form generation

Add support for select, radio, textarea & checkbox fields in form generator. Thanks to Eduardo García aka @enzo for this feature.

Add multilingual support for generated module commands

Since Drupal modules already have a config directory, the decision to store custom module command translations was adding a new directory and file at that path as example:

my_module\config\translation\console.en.yml # for english 
my_module\config\translation\console.es.yml # for spanish 

Self update command

This command update a phar install with the latest version. Thanks to David Flores aka @dmose for this feature.

$ drupal self-update

Plugin REST resource generator

This command generates a new plugin resource class. Thanks to Eduardo García aka @enzo for this feature.

$ drupal generate:plugin:rest:resource

How to used the new generated REST resource

  1. Download and Enable Rest UI module https://www.drupal.org/project/restui (git version)
  2. Enable resource at http://example.com/admin/config/services/rest select format and authentication provider
  3. Enable the Rest Resource permission to access by role at http://example.com/admin/people/permissions
