CommandBox can be extended by modules installed from external locations. When you install a CommandBox module, it will automatically be placed in the correct modules location (inside your CommandBox installation) regardless of where you run the
install command from.
Later, if you want to view, uninstall, update, or otherwise interact with these system modules, you can just use the standard package management commands, but add the
--system flag to them. Any time you add that flag, the current working directory will be ignored, and you'll be interacting with the core modules installed into CommandBox.
package list --system package update --system package uninstall commandbox-fusionreactor --system
The package commands that accept a
--system flag are as follows:
- package install
- package uninstall
- package outdated
- package list
- package update
- package show
- package set
- package clear
