Project Idea

I have a lot of dependencies to include to any fresh project, so i created this project to quickly install and configure these dependencies


composer global require abo3adel/merger


set default editor to open created stub files

merger editor:set code

Supported Files

json, xml, yaml, .git* and for other files: it will append your stubs to any files with the same name and directory


  • create new stub file Note by default this will open file, to disable add -d or --do-not-open option to the create command
merger create lara/composer.json
  • updated the file with stub code
"config": {
    "sort-packages": false
"scripts": {
    "models": ["@php artisan ide-helper:models --nowrite"]
  • add installable packages file (filename must be "install.yml")
merger create lara/install.yml
  • add some packages to install
    - laravel/ui
    - dev:
        - sven/artisan-view
