DrupalGap CLI - Command Line Interface

To help automate application development, DrupalGap comes with a command line interface (more commonly referred to as a CLI). With the DrupalGap CLI we can quickly take care of typical development and maintenance tasks.


To utilize the DrupalGap CLI, use your terminal window to make the drupalgap bash script executable:

cd mobile-application
chmod +x


To use the DrupalGap CLI, open a terminal window and navigate to your mobile app's directory:

cd mobile-application


Use the download command to quickly grab a DrupalGap module or theme:

./ dl telephone


To update the DrupalGap SDK binary files, run this command:

./drupalgap up

Backups will be saved in a directory called .drupalgap-backups if you need to roll back:

cd .drupalgap-backups
ls -la


Use the create command to quickly create a custom module:

./ module create my_module


Without adding the executable permission mentioned above in the Setup, you'll most likely get this error:

bash: ./ Permission denied
