php - Call laravel controller via command line


In kohana framework I can call controller via command line using

php5 index.php --uri=controller/method/var1/var2

Is it possible to call controller I want in Laravel 5 via cli? If yes, how to do this?

My Answer:
Yes, it is possible to call a controller in Laravel 5 via the command line. You can achieve this by creating a custom Artisan command that will execute the controller method.

Here's an example of how you can create a custom Artisan command to call a controller method:

1. Create a new Artisan command by running the following command in your terminal:

php artisan make:command CallController

2. Open the generated `CallController.php` file in the `app/Console/Commands` directory and update the `handle()` method to call the desired controller method. For example:

use Illuminate\Console\Command;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\App;

class CallController extends Command
protected $signature = 'call:controller {controller} {method}';

protected $description = 'Call a controller method via the command line';

public function handle()
$controller = $this->argument('controller');
$method = $this->argument('method');

$controllerInstance = App::make($controller);

3. Register the custom Artisan command in the `app/Console/Kernel.php` file by adding the following line to the `$commands` array:

protected $commands = [

4. You can now call the controller method via the command line by running the following command:

php artisan call:controller {controller} {method}

Replace `{controller}` with the fully qualified namespace of the controller (e.g., `App\Http\Controllers\HomeController`) and `{method}` with the method you want to call.

That's it! You have now created a custom Artisan command to call a controller method in Laravel 5 via the command line.
