Trouble installing Laravel? You may need to update your composer.json file

Composer recently made a change with the way pre-update-command works and it can cause Laravel to fail to install.

Jordi Boggiano gave the following reason for the change:

as there is no composer.lock file the initial “install” is instead doing an update (as of this afternoon), which triggers the pre-update-cmd, while this was previously triggering pre-install-cmd.

Luckily the fix is easy and only requires a moving the php artisan clear-compiled to the post-update-command:

laravel-composer-change

You can see the complete changelog here.
