Deprecation notice: Symfony Flex now natively support this feature, you can use it in your CI instead directly. This package is no longer maintained.

Using symfony/symfony makes Composer install all Symfony Components, all in the same version. But when using the standalone packages (the Symfony Flex way), Composer might install dependencies in a different major version (symfony/http-kernel v2.8 and symfony/event-dispatcher v3.4 for instance, usually because another dependency of the project is not compatible with Symfony 3.0).

This Composer package allows you to enforce a consistent major version on all Symfony Components, whether they are explicitly listed as a project's dependency or installed transitively.

For instance when using dunglas/symfony-lock:^4, if a package cannot be installed in v4.0, but only in v3.4 (usually because of another library not supporting Symfony 4), a conflict will be generated.

Note that this package is meant to be used by library authors in their continuous integration systems. It should NOT be added directly to the project's composer.json.

Difference with symfony/lts

symfony/lts enforces that your project don't use use a version not released as a LTS, but does not enforce that all your Symfony packages are in the same major version. For instance, when using symfony/lts v3, some packages can be installed in version 3.4, and some others in version 2.8.


Use the Composer command line:

composer require dunglas/symfony-lock v4
