A custom Composer plugin to install WordPress core outside of vendor.


To set up a custom WordPress build package to use this as a custom installer, add the following to your package's composer file:

"type": "wordpress-core",
"require": {
	"johnpbloch/wordpress-core-installer": "^1.0"

By default, this package will install a wordpress-core type package in the wordpress directory. To change this you can add the following to either your custom WordPress core type package or the root composer package:

"extra": {
	"wordpress-install-dir": "custom/path"

The root composer package can also declare custom paths as an object keyed by package name:

"extra": {
	"wordpress-install-dir": {
		"wordpress/wordpress": "wordpress",
		"johnpbloch/wordpress-core": "jpb-wordpress"
