Brand new rabbitmqctl in 3.7.0

December 15, 2016

As of v3.7.0 Milestone 8, RabbitMQ ships with a brand new set of CLI tools (rabbitmqctl, rabbitmq-plugins, and more), reworked from the ground-up. We had a few goals with this project.

We wanted to use a more user-friendly command line parser and produce more useful help and error messages.

Nine months later the experiment was declared a success and integrated into RabbitMQ distribution.

Please give v3.7.0 Milestone 8 a try and take a look at how easy it is to extend the CLI.

There’s also a longer document that covers new features and implementation decisions.
