What is next for the Drupal 8 Console ?

By Jesus Manuel Olivas ● Head of Products | October 15th, 2014

Thanks to my current employer Blink Reaction sponsoring some of my working hours, I will be able to spend more time as co-maintainer of the Drupal 8 Console project by the way David Flores (@dmouse) is the other co-maintainer of the project.

What is the Drupal 8 Console

The Drupal 8 Console it is an effort to bring the The Console Component to Drupal 8 as you can see on the project description .

The purpose of this project is to leverage the Symfony Console Component to provide a CLI tool to automate the creation of drupal 8 modules and other recurring tasks.

Where can you find more information about this project?
