Why use Composer?

“Composer is a tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the dependent libraries your project needs and it will install them in your project for you.”

  • Avoid committing plugins and themes into source control
  • Avoid having to use git submodules
  • Manage WordPress and non-WordPress project libraries with the same tools
  • Could eventually be used to manage dependencies between plugins
