I am currently using composer dependency manager for zendframework 2 along with twitter bootstrap , I able to successfully manage zendframework 2 but I am not able manage twitter bootstrap via composer .

The problem is composer downloads twitter bootstrap library to vender directory . This is not feasible I need composer to download twitter bootstrap to public folder and zendframework to vender folder . how to achieve this

Below is the current composer.json file that I am using .

"name": "zendframework/skeleton-application",
"description": "Skeleton Application for ZF2",
"license": "BSD-3-Clause",
"keywords": [
"homepage": "",
"require": {
"php": ">=5.3.3",
"zendframework/zendframework": "2.",
"extra": {
"installer-paths": {
"public/bootstrap/": ["twitter/bootstrap", "twitter/bootstrap"],
"vender/zendframework" : ["zendframework/zendframework" ,"zendframework/zendframework


I am new to composer Please kindly suggest correct way of specifying path for each required library in composer.json file ,

The above code is throwing error as invalid format .

Is this way of specifying different path in composer is not permitted

Thanks in advance for responding . I created a Stack overflow posting also for this
I didnt get proper response from any one .

Please kindly suggest a work around

Composer is not made to download frontend dependencies at the moment. Please check out Bower.
