Released almost 10 years ago, Composer is the most popular package manager for the PHP ecosystem. PrestaShop has been using it since 1.7.0 to manage its dependencies, including all the native modules.

Today we are announcing the general availability of PrestaShop itself through Composer. Thanks to this, it is now possible to easily create a new PrestaShop project from the command line, like this:

composer create-project prestashop/prestashop

Or, if you want to download a specific version instead of the latest release:

composer create-project prestashop/prestashop:

Now you have more flexibility to kickstart your PrestaShop projects from the command line. Enjoy!
