Composer symlink for packages
I cross around the net and could not find fast the solution for using package locally instead of passing by packagist(satis, any other hub).
It’s not really comfortable to code without executing the final bundle code in your project. You need pass by repository, merge your changes, CI/CD pipelines, so on… just to execute it.
Use composer symlink
The solution I found using your bundle directly in your project during development and not by repository.
You can add a symlink to the bundle in your project compose and simply run composer install. Simply add repositories section to composer.json
Where /tmp/loaders is the path to your dependency.
A few packages
If you have a folder which contains multiple packages then you can set the folder of packages
Next you have to update the
Nextly we run composer install
And one of the changes you should note that your dependency comes from /tmp/loaders instead of public repository.
That’s it, now when you change the code in your loaders folder you ll see the modifications immediately in your project.
Result — Repositories
