"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."
So, what support do we have in NetBeans? The first step, as usually, is to open the Composer IDE Options panel:
Once it is configured properly, it is time to create composer.json file where we can define dependencies (libraries) of our PHP project:
The generated file is opened so we can review it and add any libraries:
Now, you are ready to install, update or validate library dependencies of your PHP project:
We hope that you enjoy this initial support and that we will be able to improve it in the next version of NetBeans.
