This project is licensed under the GPL-3.0-only license



First add the following to your composer.json file:

"require": {
    "srag/librariesnamespacechanger": ">=0.1.0"
"config": {
    "optimize-autoloader": true,
    "sort-packages": true,
    "classmap-authoritative": true
"scripts": {
    "pre-autoload-dump": "srag\\LibrariesNamespaceChanger\\LibrariesNamespaceChanger::rewriteLibrariesNamespaces"

The optimized composer autoload is mandatory otherwise it will not work.

This script will change the namespace of the libraries on dump-autoload to a plugin specific namespace.

For instance the Library DIC and the the plugin HelpMe, the base namespace is srag\DIC\HelpMe\.

So you have to adjust it's namespaces in your code such in classes or src folder. You can use the replace feature of your IDE.

So you can force to use your libraries classes in the vendor folder of your plugin and come not in conflict to other plugins with different library versions and you don't need to adjust your plugins to newer library versions until you run composer update on your plugin.

It support the follow libraries:

In code

use srag\LibrariesNamespaceChanger\x\LibrariesNamespaceChanger; 
LibrariesNamespaceChanger::getInstance()->doRewriteLibrariesNamespaces(string $project_root)
