Getting help/possible commands for rake? e.g. options for


What’s the syntax for getting help/list of commands available for rake
(within a RoRs application). For example:

  • what commands are possible (e.g. db:migrate)?
  • how to get an overview / list of options for a command?

For example getting full list of options for db:migrate, I’ve tried
db:migrate --version” and this doesn’t seem to do it.

Greg - “rake --tasks”


thanks Jodi

Is there an additional rake help available for each task? e.g. rake

–help? Perhaps there isn’t from what I can tell?
