In a recent tutorial to on the SitePoint PHP blog, Alexander Cogneau shows you how to create a personal Packagist (the repository for Composer packages) using the Toran proxy.
Most of you reading this already know Composer. For those who don’t, you can read a previous article of mine before continuing. We can all agree that Composer has brought many good things into the PHP world. If one dares however to look for drawbacks, or better put, not included features, he could state that it is not possible to work with private repositories. That argument won’t hold anymore, since there is Toran Proxy.
He calls this the "end of the Satis era", replacing the Packagist clone that mirrors the packages locally rather than pulling them right from GitHub. Using the Toran proxy, he walks you through the setup of the proxy and using the wizard to complete the configuration. There's a personal use license for Toran that allows for one developer but after that you'd need to upgrade to the yearly/per developer pricing structure.
