Partyline – A Package to Print to the Artisan Console From Anywhere

Partyline is a new package that allows you to output to the console from outside of command class. This allows you more control on how things are printed and is great for when you need to loop items and show progress or other insights.

Here is an example of a normal Command’s handle method that I grabbed from their announcement:

// Console command without Partyline
public function handle()
{
    $this->line('Updating the index...');

    Search::update(); // ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    $this->line('Surprise! It is finished!');
}

Inside the Search update() method it’s difficult to pass back feedback and with Partyline this can now include the following:

class Search 
{
    public function update()
    {
        Partyline::line('Updating the index...');

        $entries = Entry::all();

        $bar = Partyline::getOutput()->createProgressBar($entries->count());

        foreach ($entries as $id => $entry) {
            $this->index->insert($id, $entry);
            $bar->advance();
        }

        $bar->finish();
        Partyline::line('All done!');
    }
}

Check out the annoncement and the Github repo for more details on this package.
