README

When do I need this?

If you are developing a composer package, and you want to know the location of the project root and/or the vendor directory.

Can I do without?

Sometimes you will work on your package stand alone, for instance on the unit tests. In that case your vendor directory can be determined relatively to a file.

You of course want your package to function when included via composer. Usually you can determine the vendor directory by going up a couple of directories. But don't forget to take the [vendor-dir] (https://getcomposer.org/doc/06-config.md#vendor-dir) config option into account.

This package takes care of that. Even better: it calculates the directory during composer install. So it's faster.

How do I use it?

<?php
namespace MyVendor\MyApp;

use Hostnet\Component\Path\Path;

class ClassInNeed
{
    public function doSomethingWithPaths()
    {
        $vendor_dir = Path::VENDOR_DIR
        $base_dir   = Path::BASE_DIR
        // ...
    }
}
