I have a method that is invoked by AJAX call, and it returns an AjaxResponse. It redirects the user with RedirectCommand, added to the response. However, I would like to change it to a conditional redirect. Is this possible with RedirectCommand, or any other way that uses the CommandInterface, preferably in a way that does not require implementing CommandInterface in a new class?

Indeed, one way to do this is to implement CommandInterface in a new class, as described here: https://www.mike-miles.com/blog/creating-ajax-callback-commands-drupal-8 . This method adds the new command to Druapl.AjaxCommands.

However, if it's not desirable to implement the interface, a similar thing can be done with the existing InvokeCommand that implements CommandInterface, as in the example here: https://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/core%21lib%21Drupal%21Core%21Ajax%21InvokeCommand.php/class/InvokeCommand/8.2.x

My minimalistic example:

Server-side (NULL can be some CSS selector instead):

$response->addCommand(new InvokeCommand(NULL, 'customRedirect', ['/']));


jQuery.fn.customRedirect = function(target) {
    if (something)
