I’m trying to use laravel, when I start a project and type
composer create-project /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/test_laravel in terminal it shows
[InvalidArgumentException] Could not find package /applications/mamp/htdocs/test_laravel with stabilit y stable.
create-project [-s|--stability="..."] [--prefer-source] [--prefer-dist] [--repository-url="..."] [--dev] [--no-dev] [--no-plugins] [--no-custom-installers] [--no-scripts] [--no-progress] [--keep-vcs] [package] [directory] [version]
How to fix it ?
and is this step equal to create folder and file like I download from laravel git
You are missing a parameter in the command. It should be in this order:
composer create-project [PACKAGE] [DESTINATION PATH] [--FLAGS]
You’re mistakingly specifying your local path as the Composer/Packagist package you wish to create a project from. Hence the “Could not find package” message.
Simply make sure you’re specifying the Laravel package and you should be good to go:
composer create-project laravel/laravel /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/test_laravel
I also had same problem then I found this on there documentation page
So if you want to create a project by name of
test_laravel in directory
/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/ then what you need to do is
go to your project parent directory
and fire this command
composer create-project laravel/laravel test_laravel
that’s it, this is really easy and it also creates Application Key automatically for you
composer create-project laravel/laravel ProjectName
My few cents. The forward-slash in the package name (laravel*/*laravel) is matter. If you put back-slash you will get package not found stability error.
with stability stable in the command ,
in your composer.json file, put
"minimum-stability": "stable" before the closing curly bracket.
you first need to install laravel using command:
composer global require laravel/installer then use
composer create-project command your problem will be solved.
I hope your problem is now solved.
- Create project
- Open: Root (htdocs)\
- Press: Shift + Open command windows here
php composer.phar create-project --prefer-dist
laravel/laravel lar-project "5.7.*"
make sure that your composer is up to date. write in the cmd
composer create-project –-prefer-dist laravel/laravel NameOfProject "Version"
No this step isn’t equal to downloading the laravel.zip
by using the command
composer create-project laravel/laravel laravel
you actually download the laravel project as well as dependent packages so its one step ahead.
If you are using windows environment you can solve the problem by deleting the composer environment variable you created to install the composer. And this command will run properly.
