Yii "basic" application setup took 74MB


I am new to Yii framwork. I started learning php since 3 months and tried out codeignitor a few week ago and still using it.

I just wanted to have a look on other frameworks, So I tried to install Yii today and followed this procedure and installed the “basic” project suggested on installation page

composer create-project --prefer-dist yiisoft/yii2-app-basic basic

after installation the size of the basic folder is 74MB. Now my doubt is, Is it normal??
why is it very big in size??

OK. I found out the extracting archive file is also 74MB size. so, nothing was wrong with composer
