We are extremely excited to announce our newest product addition to PHP dependency management: Private Packagist. A service designed to help businesses of any size use Composer more effectively and with greater confidence.
This is a hosted (not self-hosted) service that allows you to create private packages. Then you can install them – assuming you have the proper credentials – jsut like any other package hosted on Packagist. As an added bonus, since it caches all of the Open Source packages for you and their associated meta data, it is easy for you to view all of the open source your organization is using as well as the associated licenses. You even have the ability to restrict adding new open source packages until they have been reviewed.
This is a great addition to the Composer ecosystem and one that I am sure many companeis are either looking into already, or will be soon.
