CAKE(1) General Commands Manual CAKE(1)


cake - CakePHP application shell.


cake <shell>


The cake utility encapsulates a number of operations that can be performed on CakePHP applications, including generating controllers, views and models, as well as managing access control lists (ACLs), viewing API documentation and application-specific console tasks.

The available commands (or `shells') can be seen by running cake without any arguments.
