The project is very similar to Git deploy but for Composer.

Normally inserts version information when a project is packaged. Packages installed via Composer do not contain this information in some cases.

  1. The required version is a dev version
  2. Composer runs in --prefer-source mode

Composer Deploy hooks into the Drupal update system and attempts to provide the version of modules and themes from Composer metadata.
