Downloaded the M2 from magentocommerce with sample data. I have custom module which i developed locally on M2-rc 2.0. My question is that now how can i install module and where i place the custom module as there is no code folder in app directory and all the magento modules are in vendor folder. Also i dont want to create a repo for my module. Also i want to put my module in vendor folder

Just create the app/code/YourNameSpace/ModuleName folder yourself. Make sure, that your composer.json in the project root contains the line

    "files": [

in the autoload section (see https://github.com/magento/magento2-community-edition/blob/master/composer.json#L42) which is responsible for loading modules which are not installed via composer.

  • thanks for help. Also if i want to install module using composer then where i place the files? Commented Nov 18, 2015 at 11:05
  • Then you need to make a own repository for that module, add your module to the composer.json and call composer.phar update
