Compose file

Hi everyone,

In the root of my Yii2 advanced template directory I have a file named ‘compose’ which is pretty large in size (38 MB).

It seems to list at least some of the contents found in other project files.

I was wondering what is this file used for? Can I delete or empty it?

The reason I’m asking is that it contains references to stuff I had already changed in my project files and I worry it might supersede my changes.

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Could you post some details? There’s no “compose” for me.

Attached is just an example from the end of the file, but the file includes references to other files all over my application directories. 6413


It looks like Composer debug output. But I can’t really find any information about it - Google is terrible. ;)

could it be because Yii is configured as a DEV environment?
