Composer

Composer is used to manage dependencies. The Joomlatools Platform considers any 3rd party library as a dependency, including other Joomla extensions. That’s why we have created the Joomlatools Composer Plugin to install any type of extension through Composer.

We’ve separated the core components from the platform codebase so you only have to include them when needed. These components include the Content, Categories, Media and Smart Search. To install them in to the platform, require them in the composer.json manifest or run the following commands in the root directory:

composer require joomlatools/platform-content
composer require joomlatools/platform-categories
composer require joomlatools/platform-media
composer require joomlatools/platform-finder

Please refer to the documentation on how to package your own extensions so they can be installed using Composer.
