This Extra allows you to use any of the lovely libraries packaged using Composer in your MODX project.
How does it do that?
It integrates Composer's autoloader into MODX via a plugin.
Why is it useful?
- It's useful if you're familiar with a 3rd-party system you want to use within MODX or if you're integrating existing code.
- Other extra authors will bind it useful to use as a sub-package (needs more work)
Until we've used it more we aren't entirely sure :) Consider it a proof of concept for now.
Do show us how you're using it!
Install via the Package Manager, which will set up the plugin for you.
Afterwards, navigate to `core/components/composerx` and edit `composer.json` to include the modules you want to install (Packagist is a great source of Composer packages). You can delete the existing (sample) contents of this file.
Then from the command-line run:
$ php composer.phar update
To use libraries installed using Composer in your snippets/plugins, you need to apply this patch to MODX. Hopefully it will be included in Revolution 2.3.
