How to use FlowQuery in PHP

Did you know that you can use Flow Query in PHP? Its really easy and helpful when you try develop your own EelHelper. 

namespace Arsors\Neos\EelHelper;

use Neos\Flow\Annotations as Flow;
use Neos\Eel\ProtectedContextAwareInterface;


use Neos\Eel\FlowQuery\FlowQuery; //this is the line that does the trick

class ExampleEelHelper implements ProtectedContextAwareInterface
* @param Array $parameter
* @return string
public function example($context) {
$q = new FlowQuery[($context)];
return $q->();
* All methods are considered safe
* @param string $methodName
* @return boolean
public function allowsCallOfMethod($methodName)
return true;


Small hint if you change the context mode from Development to Production in the .htaccess, run a $ FLOW_CONTEXT=Production ./flow flow:cache:flush --force to clear the cache. This should read your Configuration/Production/Settings.yaml correctly.
