Drupal 8 Console (scaffolding module generator)


Every modern framework nowadays provides a scaffolding tool code generator for speeding up the process of starting a new project and avoid early repetitive tasks.

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 by generating the directory structure for a module, routing, controllers, forms, services, plugins and required configuration files.

It supports adding services using Dependency Injection on class generation.
