to reveal composer power

install sample package to custom dir (not vendor)

yii virgin app structure

Por que?

I want to install my package through composer, but not to the common "vendor" dir so i digged it and here it is...

0.0.3 starts here

  • Better create a composer.json, than try include it as a repo, with url and type:zip
  • I need a to create custom installer class which implements Composer\Installer\InstallerInterface called it let\composer\VirginInstaller
  • Probably i need also to implement a VirginInstallerPlugin (already done), but i try not to use it, as do not consider my package as 'composer-plugin' at all
  • Just need the installer to work - changes in composer.json - type is the main thing to follow

Version 0.0.2

I tried to load this repo just as plain zip package, but install it not to vendor folder Few lines from composer.json from new project

"repositories": [
        "type": "package",
        "package": {
            "name": "yurakaras/webappvirgin",
            "version": "master",
            "type": "yurakaras-webappvirgin",
            "dist": {
                "url": "https://bitbucket.org/yurakaras/web_app_virgin/get/master.zip",
                "type": "zip"
            "extra": {
                "class": "Let\\composer\\VirginInstaller"
            "require": {
                "let/composer/installers": "~1.0"
        "type": "composer",
        "url": "http://packages.phundament.com"
"extra": {
    "class": "Let\\composer\\VirginInstaller"

It didn't work out nicely
