No Frills Command Line Magento is two books in one.
First, it's a primer/manual for the popular and powerful
n98-magerun tool. This command line tool automates and simplifies many of Magento's administrative tasks, and is a no brainer if you're handling day to day IT tasks related to Magento administration.
No Frills Command Line Magento is also, in a stealthy way, a survey of modern PHP development. In teaching you about
n98-magerun, you'll also get a high level overviews of
- PHP phar Archives
- PHP Composer
- PHP Namespaces
- PHP Phing
- Symfony's Console Application Framework
- Unix Shell Scripting
Beyond learning about these important development topics, the process of installing, building, and running
n98-magerun will give you a methodology for approaching any new PHP project. No Frills Command Line Magento is a great, (and quick), read for those developers looking to hop on the programming track and take a step up from the world of entry level blue collar development.
This book is for PHP programmers of all experience levels. If you can install Magento and run
ls from the terminal, there's something for you in this book.
While No Frills Command Line Magento is considered 100% complete, updates covering new n98-magerun commands and the recently introduced module system are in the works.
