Grails Goodness: Getting More Information About A Profile

Since Grails 3.1 we can use the profile-info command to get more information about a profile. We see which commands are added to our project by the profile and which features can be chosen when we create a new application with the profile.

Suppose we want to know more about the rest-api profile then we invoke the profile-info command:

$ grails profile-info rest-api
Profile: rest-api
Profile for Web API applications
