Frequently Asked Questions

How is Castor different from raw Symfony Console usage?

Castor is a task runner, so it's primary goal is to run simple tasks to simplify the project development. Usually, it is used to run Docker commands, database migrations, cache clearing, etc.

Usually, tasks are very small, like 1 or 2 lines of code. So you probably don't want to waste your project with ops command that are not strictly related to the business.

Why "Castor"?

Castor means "beaver" in french. It's an animal building stuff. And this is what this tool does: it helps you build stuff 😁
