Composer is a package manager for PHP, which includes a standard format for dependency management and required libraries. It’s like a tool-kit for PHP developers that can reduce development time and cost, as well as improve security and stability of applications.

Easy management with clients

Composer is managed through graphical clients or the command line. A command like “composer install” installs all libraries for an application (as defined in the configuration file composer.json). There are similar commands for updates and removal.

Pre-installed for all

The Composer package manager is pre-installed with all website environments at Servebolt. If you haven’t checked out Composer before, read more here about how to get started with Composer.
