ImpressCMS 2.0 site creation with composer

You can now deploy a new instance of ImpressCMS 2.0 from the composer command-line

One of the goals of ImpressCMS 2.0 is to make use of the PHP composer tool where it can. That means, for example, that you will be able to install, update and remove addons using the composer command-line tool.

For developers, you have starting from today the option to deploy a ImpressCMS 2.0 release directly from composer using the following syntax:

composer create-project impresscms/impresscms -s dev <folder>

This will make it easier to quickly spin up a new development environment, or a new site from scratch.

We will improve on this in the future, like automatically running the installation routine from the composer install command, so that you can get a site up and running without needing a web browser.
