SilverStripe Vendor Plugin Helper Utility

When installing SilverStripe modules in the vendor directory it may also be necessary to ensure certain module assets are exposed to the webroot, as the 'vendor' url prefix is blocked from web-access by default.

See also: Vendor plugin

This utility allows setup of these paths if the vendor-plugin is disabled through the use of --no-plugins in install.

See information on this plugin at the vendor-plugin github page


composer global require silverstripe/vendor-plugin-helper
echo 'export PATH=$PATH:~/.composer/vendor/bin/'  >> ~/.bash_profile


Both commands are similar: One will symlink vendor modules, the other will copy resources. The root directory used as the public webroot is resources by default.

  • vendor-plugin-helper copy /path/to/www
  • vendor-plugin-helper link /path/to/www

Optional args:

  • --target Top level folder to link resources to. Defaults to resources
