To move a dependency out of the vendor directory in Symfony, you can use Composer to manage the dependency. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do this:

  1. Remove the dependency from your composer.json file in the "require" section.
  2. Run composer update to remove the dependency from the vendor directory.
  3. Create a new directory for the dependency outside of the vendor directory. You can create a "lib" or "libs" directory in the root of your project.
  4. Copy the dependency files and folders from the vendor directory to the new directory you created.
  5. Edit your composer.json file to add a new repository for the dependency. You can add a "repositories" section with a type of "path" and a url pointing to the location of the dependency on your filesystem. For example:
1
2
3
4
5
6
"repositories": [
    {
        "type": "path",
        "url": "./libs/your_dependency"
    }
]


  1. Add the dependency back to your composer.json file in the "require" section, but specify the path to the new directory where the dependency is located. For example:
1
2
3
"require": {
    "yourvendor/your_dependency": "*"
}


  1. Run composer update to install the dependency from the new directory.


By following these steps, you can move a dependency out of the vendor directory in Symfony and manage it separately using Composer.
