First-class Composer support for Eclipse

Today composer support for eclipse PDT is available. The project was originally created by Robert Gründler. In my fork I added an editor to manipulate the composer.json. We both made composer in a pdt a delicious experience. It ships with the following features:

  • Full fledged composer.json editor
  • Search on from within eclipse
  • Install / Update dependencies
  • Create new Composer projects
  • Automatic buildpath management for dependencies
  • Improved dependency graph

Find more on the composer-plugin website for install instructions. Contribute by adding a ticket to or even more funnier, fork the code and send us a pull-request with your desired changes.
