Check for composer dependencies during module installation #7

As specified in the composer.json file, the module depends on the PHP package christian-riesen/otp for its working. A user needs to install this package before installing the module.

So the logical thing is to stop the module from being installed if this dependency is not met. A simple hook_requirements() implementation will do the job.

The following code, in tfa.install, would take care of the issue:

 * Implements hook_requirements().
function tfa_requirements($phase) {
  $requirements = array();

  $requirements['tfa'] = array(
    'title' => t('Two-factor Authentication (TFA)'),

  if (class_exists('\Otp\Otp')) {
    $requirements['tfa']['severity'] = REQUIREMENT_OK;
  else {
    $requirements['tfa']['severity'] = REQUIREMENT_ERROR;
    $requirements['tfa']['description'] = t("Please install the 'christian-riesen/otp' library via composer. See the module README for instructions.");

  return $requirements;
