Alessandro Nadalin's Blog:
Managing PHP dependencies with composer
January 31, 2012 @ 13:11:09

Alessandro Nadalin has a new post to his blog looking at the Composer project and using it to manage packages and dependencies in PHP applications.

Managing dependencies between pieces of software, in PHP, hasn't always been a relief: we had PEAR and PECL with their workflows and problems while, in other ecosystems, the solution to this problem has been solved in better ways, like NodeJS's NPM.

He takes a first look at the tool, describing how to get it set up, create a sample configuration (describing each section inside it) and an example of the tool's output. He also briefly touches on the Packagist website/repository and links to the instructions on how to create your own.
