This topic provides an overview of how to get either the Magento Open Source or Magento Commerce metapackage .

Intended audience

The audience for this topic is anyone who downloads the Magento metapackage using composer create-project. If that isn’t you, go back and choose another starting point.

Prerequisites

Before you continue, make sure you’ve done all of the following:

We use Composer to manage Magento components and their dependencies. Using Composer to get the Magento software metapackage provides the following advantages:

  • Reuse third-party libraries without bundling them with source code
  • Reduce extension conflicts and compatibility issues by using a component-based architecture with robust dependency management
  • Adhere to PHP-Framework Interoperability Group (FIG) standards
  • Repackage Magento Open Source with other components
  • Use the Magento software in a production environment

You must create a Composer project from our metapackage if you want to use the Magento Web Setup Wizard to upgrade the Magento software and third-party extensions.
