n98-magerun 2 development started

Published by Christian Münch on


As already posted on MageHero we started the development of a seperate n98-magerun version for Magento 2.
We decided to create a complete new version and against some other options like to create a “clone command” or sperate lib inside the same phar file.

The purposes are:

  • The phar file will be too big (> 4MB)
  • The Magento 2 framework is too different
  • We need a clean development start
  • Maintenance!

If you like to test the current unstable development version you can checkout the existing source code on github.


Please note that all development is done in develop branch.
During development we don’t create any phar file inside the git repository.
Pull requests are only accepted for develop branch.

You can checkout everything by running this commands:

git clone https://github.com/netz98/n98-magerun2.git
cd n98-magerun2
git checkout develop

It’s a good idea to create an alias.

alias n98-magerun-dev2='php <path to magerun2>/bin/n98-magerun2'

After that you can run “n98-magerun-dev2” in your Magento 2 test installation.
