Using Composer for installing MantisBT plugins

Post by grv87 »

composer/installers v1.8.0 added support for MantisBT plugins (PR).
Now it's possible to use Composer to install MantisBT plugins. They will be installed in plugins directory.

General description of the method: https://getcomposer.org/doc/faqs/how-do ... amework.md.
Plugin must be packaged with Composer, with mantisbt-plugin type.

Working example:
* Plugin packaged with Composer: https://github.com/FIDATA/Releases/blob ... poser.json
* Plugin used in MantisBT instance: https://github.com/FIDATA/mantisbt/blob ... poser.json

Hope that MantisBT plugin authors will start to package their plugins with Composer.
And this will simplify plugin management for owners of MantisBT instances.
