To add this package as a local, per-project dependency to your project, simply add a dependency on jeroen/file-fetcher to your project's composer.json file. Here is a minimal example of a composer.json file that just defines a dependency on FileFetcher 3.x:

    "require": {
        "jeroen/file-fetcher": "^3.0.0"


Get the FileFetcher code, either via git, or some other means. Also get all dependencies. You can find a list of the dependencies in the "require" section of the composer.json file. Load all dependencies and the load the FileFetcher library by including its entry point: FileFetcher.php.
