Packagist, the PHP Package repository, received a new design. Some of the improvements that come with this update include:
- Recommending the
composer require namespace/packagesyntax.
- GitHub stars/watches/issues counts.
- The project’s readme included.
The one downside I see is that the primary focus of the site seems to be more geared toward those creating packages, instead of those consuming.
For example on a package details page, the only instructions it gives to install is
composer require laravel/framework. However, if you select a different release in the sidebar it gives no indication on how to install that specific release.
