Sometimes developers that use composer to install packages in their projects lose the composer.json file accidentally. In that case, this package can help by providing alternative methods to rebuild the composer.json file. This package can be used to recover the lost composer dependency list. It can scan the directory of a project that uses the composer tool to find the dependency file list in case it was missed. Currently, it can recover the dependencies from either the composer.lock file or from the vendor/composer/installed.json file.

Do you think we are missing an alternative of composer-recovery or a related project?
Helper for recovery composer dependency list (if you lost composer.json) from composer.lock or vendor/composer/installed .json
NOTE: It is not file-recovery tool, and it can`t recover composer.json data same as it was in original. It just extracts package list and concrete versions (and also hash for dev-master dependecies) from composer.lock, or, if it absent too, from vendor/composer/installed.json
If recover maked from installed.json - there are no way to separate default and dev dependencies
See [tests/stub/app1_expected.json](tests/stub/app1_expected.json) as an example of result file
NOTE2: If your project under vcs control, you don't need this package. You can easy restore composer.json from previous commit or another branch
composer global require insolita/composer-recovery
Ensure that your ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory declared in $PATH
if not - you should add it in ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile
cd /var/www/myproject && composer-recovery
-p : path to project directory (by default - active directory where script was called)
-o : path to directory where recovered_dependecies.json will be written (by default - same as project directory)
-f : custom file name - (by default - recovered_dependecies.json)
Examples with options:
composer-recovery -p /var/www/myproject/ -o /some/place/for/result/ -f mycomposer.json
composer-recovery -p . -o ../output/
