I recently switched to drupal_composer to manage my dependencies and updates. And so far I can really see the benefit of this work method, and highly encourage everyone to switch.
However, I tried installing the module Simple Oauth, but composer can't find it.
$ composer require "drupal/simple_oauth:^2.0-alpha4"
./composer.json has been updated
Loading composer repositories with package information
Updating dependencies (including require-dev)
Your requirements could not be resolved to an installable set of packages.
- The requested package drupal/simple_oauth could not be found in any version, there may be a typo in the package name.
- A typo in the package name
- The package is not available in a stable-enough version according to your minimum-stability setting
see <https://getcomposer.org/doc/04-schema.md#minimum-stability> for more details.
Read <https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md> for further common problems.
Installation failed, reverting ./composer.json to its original content.
When browsing composer, nothing is found either.
$ composer browse drupal/simple_oauth
Package drupal/simple_oauth not found
Invalid or missing repository URL for drupal/simple_oauth
Is this due to the alpha release not being published or something?
