Session type Talk (45 minutes)
Long Abstract In 2003 TYPO3 set a new standard for CMS's when introducing extensions and the accompanying online repository known as TER. The ability to download, install and upgrade extensions from a central repository directly from within the system, is still a feature many other systems is missing.

With the introduction of the new architecture for TYPO3 Phoenix and FLOW3 a need to handle different types of assets has arised. And not only packages for these systems, but also viewhelpers, common domian classes and TypoScript-snippets are candidates for sharing and reusing.

With the package management in TYPO3 Phoenix and FLOW3 the first steps of introducing a new infrastructure for sharing all kinds of assets within the TYPO3 eco-system has been made. This is based on the PHP project Composer and a distributed hosting of assets via Git.

This talk will give you insight into the new package management as well as an introduction to Composer. Also we will discuss the plans for a new common hub for sharing extensions, packages etc.
