Installing Composer globally in Ubuntu 16.04

Run this in your terminal to get the latest Composer version:

$ php -r "copy('https://getcomposer.org/installer', 'composer-setup.php');"

$ php -r "if (hash_file('SHA384', 'composer-setup.php') === '669656bab3166a7aff8a7506b8cb2d1c292f042046c5a994c43155c0be6190fa0355160742ab2e1c88d40d5be660b410') { echo 'Installer verified'; } else { echo 'Installer corrupt'; unlink('composer-setup.php'); } echo PHP_EOL;"

$ php composer-setup.php

$ php -r "unlink('composer-setup.php');"


After running the installer run this:

$ mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer 

Note: If the above fails due to permissions, you may need to run it again with sudo.

To verify installation type:

$ composer

You will get a similar output shown below:
