#13606 assigned Feature/Enhancement Request

Please install Composer for conference.leftforum,org

Reported by: Webmaster of Leftforum Owned by: JaimeV
Priority: Urgent Component: Tech
Keywords: composer Cc: Jamie McClelland
Sensitive: no



according to this comment you installed composer on our development site.

Can we have composer installed on our live site as well? We switched entirely to JUST use composer when it comes to de/install of drupal modules...

Thank you,

Hi Marcus, sorry for the delay. composer appears to have already been installed recently for the hosting order.

0 lfconf@stokely:~$ ls -l bin/composer 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 lfconf lfconf 1861877 Mar 30 16:31 bin/composer

It appears to be working from the command line.

I just learned that Gabriel, one of our tech workers here installed composer locally for the different users we use.

However this kind of installation does not allow us to use composer require which would make us able to install modules from the command line on the server.

In January we where told that there is an update being made on the server and that would include the composer tool. Composer is on of the major interventions I believe which arrived in the drupal community. It really saves work! In many senses.

So when you have a chance, can you try to install composer globally?

My understanding is that we need to upgrade to the next version of Debian before we can install composer globally from the Debian package. We are almost set to do this but there is one more technical hurdle we need to cross. jamie is working on this currently.

Hi Marcus - you should be able to use composer to install downloads - although it may require editing your PATH variable (to add ~/bin to your path).

If you can give me the details on how/where it is not working, I can help you fix that.
