Hey everyone

I am trying to execute a php script when a composer module is installed when issuing a command such as composer require vendor/package-name.

The composer json of the package looks like this:

{ "name": "vendor/package-name", "description": "some description", "type": "library", "license": "MIT", "authors": [{ "name": "author", "email": "ma...@packagist.org", "homepage": "http://example.com" }], "minimum-stability": "stable", "require": { "php": ">=5.3.0" }, "autoload": { "psr-4": {"PmbaTestPackage\\": "src/"} }, "scripts": { "pre-install-cmd": [ "php src/notify.php" ], "post-update-cmd": [ "php src/notify.php" ] }, "version": "1.0.1" }

And I want to execute the script at php/notify.php when the module is required. I looked at the hooks described here: https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/scripts.md

But it doesn't work, no hooks are executed? What is the reason?

It should work like a charm.

Try this example. composer.json

{
    "scripts": {
        "post-update-cmd": "touch hello.txt"
    }
}

composer require aura/auth

If you look at your directory you will see a hello.txt .

I feel there is some issue on the notify script or execution of script.

Thank you

Only hooks of the root package are executed, as explained in the composer documentation
