Build Status Coverage Status

This is for i-MSCP composer package authors to require in their composer.json. It will install their package to the correct location based on the specified package type.

Current supported installers and package types

Installer Types
i-MSCP imscp-plugin
imscp-theme
imscp-tool
Roundcube roundcube-plugin

Example composer.json

This is an example for the i-MSCP PhpMyAdmin composer package. The only important parts to set in the composer.json file are "type": "imscp-tool" which describes what package is and "require": { "imscp/composer-installers": "^1.0" } which tells composer to load the custom installers.

{
    "name": "imscp/phpmyadmin",
    "type": "imscp-tool",
    "require": {
        "imscp/composer-installers": "^1.0"
    }
}

This would install the package to the gui/public/tools/phpmyadmin/ path.

Custom install paths

i-MSCP developers and/or administrators can override the install paths in different ways, using the installer-paths extra in the composer.json of the i-MSCP instance :

Per package basis

{
    "extra": {
        "installer-paths": {
            "custom/path/{$name}/": [
                "konzeptplus/imscp-api",
                "imscp/dns-provisioning"
            ]
        }
    }
}

would install both the konzeptplus/imscp-api and imscp/dns-provisioning packages into the custom/path/{$name}/ path.

Per package type basis

{
    "extra": {
        "installer-paths": {
            "custom/path/{$name}/": [
                 "type:imscp-plugin"
             ]
        }
    }
}

would install any package of type imscp-plugin into the custom/path/{$name}/ path.

Per vendor basis

{
    "extra": {
        "installer-paths": {
            "custom/path/{$name}/": [
                "vendor:konzeptplus"
            ]
        }
    }
}

would install any package provided by the konzeptplus vendor into the custom/path/{$name}/ path.

In all the above cases, the following variables are available for use in paths:

  • {$name}: Package name
  • {$vendor} Vendor name
  • {$type} Package type

Custom install name

As a package author, you can name it differently when installed by using the installer-name extra in the package composer.json.

If you have a package named imscp/roundcube of type imscp-tool, it would be installed in the gui/public/tools/roundcube path. To provide this package as default Webmail, you need override its name as follows:

{
    "name": "imscp/roundcube",
    "type": "imscp-tool",
    "extra": {
        "installer-name": "webmail"
    }
}

By doing so, the package would be installed in the gui/public/tools/webmail path.

Disabling installers

There may be time when you want to disable one or more installers from imscp/composer-installers. For instance, if you are managing a package that uses a specific installer that conflicts with imscp/composer-installers but also have a dependency on a package that depends on imscp/composer-installers.

Installers can be disabled by specifying the extra installer-disable property. If set to true, "all", or "*" all installers will be disabled.

{
    "extra": {
        "installer-disable": true
    }
}

Otherwise a single installer or an array of installers may be specified.

{
    "extra": {
        "installer-disable": [
            "imscp",
            "roundcube"
        ]
    }
}

Note: Using a global disable value (true, "all", or "*") will take precedence over individual installer names if used in an array. The example below will disable all installers.

{
    "extra": {
        "installer-disable": [
          "imscp",
          "all"
        ]
    }
}
