Composer Tips

Session Category Beginner Track Room 162 Audience Beginner Time Slot Sat 9:45am to 10:30am (2/18/23)

Let's take a tour of a composer file.
Last year, I worked on small team to move 35 sites from our own proprietary hosting that used archival or "fat" repositories to Amazeeio which required "skinny" repos. In the process, we learned how to leverage Composer.

  • Managing libraries turned out to be tricky. I will show you the solution that finally worked for us.
  • I will outline how we handled custom modules and patches in the move.
  • Time allowing, I will show the site audit commands and modules I used to figure out the work required to fully-manage a site with Composer.
  • Also, I will share the Composer commands that I used (and use) frequently to gather information, and evolve a site.
