Description waldermort 2014-08-01 15:15:23 UTC
The New Project wizard (Step 5: Composer) is great for selecting a package and version, but, it doesn't create the project.

"composer require xxx" is run rather than "composer create-project xxx".

In addition to this a standard index.php (for a PHP project) is created in the root folder.

An earlier enhancment request (marked as FIXED) says this will be available after version 7.4, This does not seem to be the case.

Perhaps that Composer Wizard page should have a check box indicating "use create-project" and default to using "require".

what is the status of this issue? This shouldn't require much work.
Comment 3 Tomas Mysik 2014-09-12 06:05:41 UTC
Not so easy as it could seem to be, sorry.

@waldermort: the earlier request was something different, but I agree that this is a very important feature.

You can't create a (i.e. Symfony2) project in NetBeans. This is the only step that I have to take in the terminal. The support for Symfony2 (or composer in general) is OK, but this is very important.

+1 for this enhacement
Comment 6 joao_neto 2015-04-13 13:20:19 UTC
but I think this feature should not be in the window "New Project", but in the "Team" menu. Like Team -> Composer -> Import Composer Project and after create a Netbeans project.

BTW in the development version of NetBeans, one can simply open a directory with composer.json file as a NetBeans project. Feel free to test it and report issues you find.
