Composer plugin to merge multiple sub composer.json files
If you are familiar with bamarni/composer-bin-plugin, you know that you can
easily manage several namespaces without impacting your project dependencies.
There is however one issue: the
composer.json files in your
directory are completely isolated from your project root
composer.json. It is
possible thanks to wikimedia/composer-merge-plugin to change that. This
library pre-configure this plugin to work more nicely out of the box.
