To use Composer with CakePHP, follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window and navigate to the root directory of your CakePHP project.
  2. Create a new file named composer.json in the root directory of your CakePHP project.
  3. Add the following code to the composer.json file:
1
2
3
4
5
{
    "require": {
        "cakephp/cakephp": "^4.2"
    }
}


This code specifies that your project requires CakePHP version 4.2.

  1. Run the following command in the terminal window to install CakePHP and its dependencies:
1
$ composer install


This command will download and install CakePHP and its dependencies.

  1. After the installation is complete, include the Composer autoloader in your application's config/bootstrap.php file:
1
require dirname(__DIR__) . '/vendor/autoload.php';


This will ensure that all the classes and libraries installed by Composer are available in your CakePHP application.


That's it! You can now use CakePHP with Composer.
