An idea that has been brewing inside the Flarum team for a while, is bundling much used extensions inside their own composer packages. Extiverse understands a ton about the Flarum ecosystem. To share more of that information, I just set up the very first bundle to see how this best suits the community.
Most downloaded extensions
By installing this package you will install the 20 top downloaded extensions (all time) that are compatible with the latest Flarum release.
composer require extiverse/most-downloaded-extensions:@dev
The package is updated monthly. As a consequence, if you run
composer update at a later time extensions that were included in this package might have been removed. Extensions that you started to rely on are best added separately with the command:
composer require <package>:*
// for instance
composer require fof/follow-tags:*
I'm considering changing this logic to create releases per month based on the downloads of the past month. I'm also open for suggestion what would make sense to you.
