Listing console commands

Using advanced app template. Is there a way to get the output of yii help to display in the frontend?

Yes. Write the output in a socket and read it with websockets. Write it in a database and read it from there, etc. This has nothing to do with yii.

  1. Extend yii\console\controllers\HelpController, where overwrite stdout(), where use echo for output
  2. In web controller action call extended HelpController action help and catch text.
