Last week I gave my Composer for corporate use presentation at the code.talks 15 conference im Hamburg. In the section of my talk where I highlight how to work on multiple packages the same time (e.g. two applications sharing the same core functionality) I pointed to the audience to path repository feature of Composer. Unfortunately right after my session I began to realize that this is indeed the best feature we have out there when it comes to working on multiple packages the same time and to avoid the Satis or ToranProxy round trip. This is how it works: Add the following lines to your root composer.json file:

Recently we converted one of project to use Vagrant Rsync Folders instead of the default VirtualBox shared folder setup. After running the vagrant rsync-auto command for a while we realized that the symlinks in Composers ./vendor/bin/ where replaced with the content of the previously symlinked files. This made the commands unusable.

Since we have to deal with a lot of private packages which cannot be shared on packagist I set-up a private Satis repo. Whenever a new version of a package gets created the Satis build process is started by our Jenkins build server. In the last couple of months this process takes quite a while because Satis rebuilds the index for every repo it knows about. Since we deal with quite a few repos containing a large amount of versions it slowed down the "build time". Obviously it does not make any sense to run Satis on a repo that has not changed. Since Satis was lacking this feature I started hacking on it and I am happy that the feature got merged into master this morning. If you have to deal with large repos or a large number of repos you might want to give it a try.This is how things work:

As I blogged recently we solved the HTTP Basic Auth problem with Composer / Satis by using expect. I still like the general idea but expect can be a bit tricky to configure. For those of you who are not happy with that solution this one might be a good alternative: As I helped out Manuel Lemos to create an Composer Installer for phpclasses.org packages he pointed out that the new Composer Plugin API might make it easier to extend Composer and offer authentication support. And yes he was right ;) As I had some spare time last weekend I extracted the code handling the authentication logic from his installer and created a separate plugin which can be found on github and packagist.org.

Vom 24.02.2014 bis zum 28.02.2014 findet in Montreal die ConFoo 2014 Konferenz statt. Ich bin dieses Mal wieder dabei und kann zwei neue Vorträge präsentieren: Im Vortrag "The seven deadly sins of Dependency Injection" möchte ich darstellen welche Fehler man bei der Verwendung des Dependency Injection Patterns nicht machen sollte. Der Vortrag "The Setup: Composer, Phing, Vagrant, Jenkins" beleuchtet unsere Arbeitsweise mit den genannten Tools soll aufzeigen wie man mit den Tools arbeiten kann (aber nicht muss).
