I don't really know what that would look like - wouldn't we need some sort of PHP support?  I'm not aware of anything along those lines.

Not that I have any personal experience with this, but I think the repo needs to just linked or mirrored to packagist. and a package json file needs to be written with version information.

The google php api client is available on composer:

There are unofficial versions/forks from the closure library github that are listed on packagist:

It looks like the only difference is a composer.json file. I would like to see google officially list this on packagist as I'm running this in a production environment.

We discussed this among the team today and decided it probably doesn't make sense for us to have a presence on various non-JS package managers.  The Google PHP API Client example does not (to my mind) provide sufficient precedent, since it's actually a PHP library.

We do have an NPM package ( and I believe there are bridges between Composer and NPM (e.g., though I haven't looked into how they work.  If you're concerned about the security implications of a third-party package, you're also free to make your own fork for Composer, which you could control.
