I am working on creating a base module for all other modules under one namespace.

I want to show a list of all modules (with their version and their status as enabled or disabled).

I have injected dependency of \Magento\Framework\Module\ModuleListInterface in my block file, but I am not getting the module in the list if I disable it.

I have tried getAll() and getNames() functions. No function is returning disabled module names in the list.

Previously it was possible to get the list of all modules because there was a section in admin panel (Advanced), where all modules were listed with respective module output.

Kindly help me to get the list of all modules.

After some study of Magento core modules, I checked the source, from where the following command is executed:

php bin/magento module:status

I found that Magento is using \Magento\Framework\Module\FullModuleList class to get the list of enabled and disabled modules.

Based on Magento's implementation, I have implemented my code in the following way:

namespace Mohit\Base\Block;

class Modules extends \Parent\Class
    protected $fullModuleList;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\Module\FullModuleList $fullModuleList
    ) {

        $this->fullModuleList = $fullModuleList;

    public function modulesList()
        $allModules = $this->fullModuleList->getAll();

Also, tons of thanks to @sanne, who helped me to go in the right direction.

A shot in the dark here, but maybe you could look how the terminal function bin/magento module:status works and copy that somehow? Because that shows all modules and the statuses? No idea how though.
