Composer is a dependency manager for PHP.
- Last tested on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (trusty) | easy | less than a minute
$ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
All settings correct for using Composer
Composer successfully installed to: /home/mhan/bin/composer.phar
Use it: php composer.phar
Make sure you have PHP (CLI version) installed. If you're the only developer on the machine, you may want to create a folder called ~/bin and put the generated composer file there. I usually rename mine to simply composer and then make it only user executable. By default it becomes other-executable. This way I can just invoke
$ composer update from anywhere. Feel free to make it available to others by moving it to /usr/local/bin.
Be sure to run
$ composer self-update often because numerous updates are occurring on a daily basis.
