Use Composer "replace" to fake out installing bower-asset dependencies that aren't really needed
Composer package to "replace" bower-asset dependencies that aren't actually needed
I use Yii2 a lot, and to use the Gii feature for generating base models. Gii also has the ability to generate views, but I don't use those. Unfortunately then Gii requires some bower-asset stuff that often has problems due to the fxp/composer-asset-plugin.
So this composer.json file says it replaces the jquery packages that Gii needs to resolve fxp/composer-asset-plugin issues.
