Install Composer + Twig for Windows 8

I use Wamp server and I had a problem with installing Composer. I have found this solution:
You should enable php_openssl in the Wamp menu. After this you could open the php.ini and set ON the allow_url_fopen. So. After this restart the Wamp Server and open the command line:

 php -r "eval('?>'.file_get_contents('http://getcomposer.org/installer'));"  

Then you should enable php_phar extension in the Wamp Server menu.

After the Wamp restart you should create a composer.json file:

 {  
   "require": {  
     "twig/twig": "1.*"  
   }  
 }  

…and install the Twig:

 php composer.phar install  

I hope it will work… 🙂

      Hi,

      So, for instance your www root is C:\wamp\www

      1.You should create for instance dir C:\wamp\wwww\test_twig and after creating you should put your composer file here.

      2. You should install here composer.phar, as well. After that you just need to run command:
      “php composer.phar install”. It should create on directory by name

      C:\wamp\wwww\test_twig\vendor\twig
