Composer is a dependency manager for PHP that helps you declare, manage, and install dependencies of PHP projects. Composer’s management of dependencies was inspired by npm from Node.js and Bundler from Ruby.

We are excited to announce that core maintainer Nils Adermann and Jordi Boggiano will be providing assurances for Composer as part of the Tidelift Subscription. With the Tidelift Subscription, you can get management and maintenance for Composer and your whole dependency tree.
