Command Line Usage

Grails incorporates a CLI and also uses the powerful build system Gradle.

The basic usage scenario is:

grails <<command name>> <<options>>*

When running Gradle tasks you can specify the environment that the command executes in with an optional grails.env parameter, either with one of the built-in environment names:

./gradlew bootRun -Dgrails.env=dev
./gradlew bootRun -Dgrails.env=test
./gradlew bootRun -Dgrails.env=prod
./gradlew bootRun -Dgrails.env=custom

Refer to the user guide section on The Command Line for more information.
