REPL (a custom shell for Drupal)

The php:cli command is interactive PHP REPL with your bootstrapped site (remote or local). It’s a Drupal code playground. You can do quick code experimentation, grab some data, or run Drush commands. This can also help with debugging certain issues. See this blog post for an introduction. Run help for a list of commands.

Any global PsySH configuration is loaded by Drush. If you prefer a config file that is specific to the project (and can be checked in with other source code), set the environment variable PSYSH_CONFIG=</path/to/config-file>. This file then takes precedence over any global file.

Entity classes are available without their namespace. For example, Node::load() works instead of Drupal\Node\entity\Noad::load().
