I am creating one module which will contain more then 1 module in it. Is it possible to create single composer file for more then 1 module?

Please let me know is it possible or not. If yes, then it will be more helpful if you can tell me how.

Yes, with the following directory structure:

- composer.json
- registration.php
- module1/
- module2/

composer.json contains the reference to registration.php as usual.

In registration.php you define the source directories for both modules:

namespace {
        __DIR__ . '/module1'
        __DIR__ . '/module2'

The directories module1 and module2 contain the rest of the source files for each module.

  • Would this also work modules placed in the "vendor" directory, installed from a custom composer repository?

  • Yes, actually this only works for composer installed modules, I assumed you were asking for that. For modules in app/code you need two separate registration.php files Apr 16, 2017 at 13:28
  • Should I keep registartion.php, module1 & module2 inside Vendor folder? Apr 17, 2017 at 11:58
  • I don't understand the question. If you install the package with composer, all will be placed within the vendor directory and you shouldn't change anything there Apr 17, 2017 at 14:17
