    A simple and conveniant command line to manage devilbox from anywhere

    Getting Started


    You need Devilbox to be installed somewhere on your computer.

    By default, the script will use the path $HOME/.devilbox. If you have cloned devilbox somewhere else, add the following to your profile and change ##PATH_TO_DEVILBOX## accordingly:


    Then reload your terminal or run source ~/.zshrc if you use zsh.


    As simple as :

    npm install -g devilbox-cli

    If installed successfully, you should see something like this when you run devilbox -v:

    devilbox-cli v0.4.1 (2020-12-06)
    A simple and conveniant cli to manage devilbox from anywhere


    devilbox-cli provides all basic command to manage your installation:

    devilbox check   # Check your .env
    devilbox config  # Get and set variables on your .env
    devilbox enter   # Enter the php container with script
    devilbox exec    # Execute a command in the container
    devilbox mysql   # Execute a command in the container
    devilbox open    # Open the devilbox intranet
    devilbox run     # Start the containers
    devilbox stop    # Stop all containers
    devilbox restart # Stop and rerun all containers
    devilbox update  # Update to latest devilbox version

    To see containers current versions defined in devilbox .env file, use the config command:

    devilbox config --apache --php --mysql
    # [!] Apache current version is 2.4
    # [!] PHP current version is 7.2
    # [!] MySql current version is 5.6

    It can also list available versions of any container:

    devilbox config --mysql=*
    # [!] MySql available versions:
    # 5.5
    # 5.6
    # 5.7
    # 8.0

    And of course, it can change any version:

    devilbox config --php=8.0
    # [✔] PHP version updated to 8.0

    You can also point devilbox to your projects folder:

    devilbox config --www=../Documents/Projects/www
    # [✔] Projects path config updated to ../Documents/Projects/wwww

    And if you dont remember a command, devilbox help is your best friend :)

    Optional Configuration

    By default, the run command will start the default LAMP stack containers php httpd mysql. The command can be customized by configuring your desired services via the $DEVILBOX_CONTAINERS variable. For example, if you'd like to also run the NOSQL stack, you would define the following:

    export DEVILBOX_CONTAINERS="php httpd mysql redis memcd mongo"

    Then reload your terminal or run source ~/.zshrc if you use zsh.

    Important notes

    The script was tested on zsh and bash on linux. Use at your own risk on other platforms.


    Highly welcomed! The script only implements the basics I needed for myself (LAMP). It may be useful for others to add missing commands, test it on macOS and Windows, and test in on other shells.
