Composer Logo
drush composer

Composer is a PHP package management tool to help manage your project or libraries' dependencies. This project allows use of Composer from Drush.


drush dl composer-8


git clone --branch 8.x-1.x ~/.drush/composer

Since this is Drush extension that works across all versions of Drush, it doesn't need a different release for each different Drupal version. Hence this just being an 8.x project.
