How to specify Composer install path?

I have this definition:

{
"repositories": [
{
"type": "package",
"package": {
"name": "symfony/sfGuardPlugin",
"version": "4.0.2",
"dist": {
"url": "http://plugins.symfony-project.org/get/sfGuardPlugin/sfGuardPlugin-4.0.2.tgz",
"type": "tar"
}
}
}
],
"require": {
"symfony/sfGuardPlugin": "4.0.*"
}
}


I am using Symfony 1, and I'd like to install them on
plugins/sfGuardPlugin/
. How do I specify this?

Answer

It seems that you can define the vendor dir to be something else (plugins in your case):

{
    "config": {
        "vendor-dir": "plugins"
    }
}

Then, you might rename the package name to not have a level dir inside, like:

        "package": {
            "name": "sfGuardPlugin",

So you composer.json should like this:

{
    "config": {
        "vendor-dir": "plugins"
    },
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "package",
            "package": {
                "name": "sfGuardPlugin",
                "version": "4.0.2",
                "dist": {
                    "url": "http://plugins.symfony-project.org/get/sfGuardPlugin/sfGuardPlugin-4.0.2.tgz",
                    "type": "tar"
                }
            }
        }
    ],
    "require": {
        "sfGuardPlugin": "4.0.*"
    }
}

Edit

Using this configuration, you will get the path (which is of course not good for symfony):

plugins/sfGuardPlugin/sfGuardPlugin-4.0.2/

I found a workaround with this composer.json:

{
    "config": {
        "vendor-dir": "plugins"
    },
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "package",
            "package": {
                "name": "sfGuardPlugin",
                "version": "4.0.2",
                "source": {
                    "url": "http://svn.symfony-project.com/plugins/sfGuardPlugin/",
                    "type": "svn",
                    "reference": "branches/1.3/"
                }
            }
        }
    ],
    "require": {
        "sfGuardPlugin": "4.0.*"
    }
}
