I followed the instructions on docs.drush.org for installing Drush, proceeded by the recommended steps for installing Composer and a new Drupal 8 project. My project (cfbtv) is located at ~/sites/cfbtv and it appears the composer template (whatever that is) installed Drupal in the web directory.
When I try the recommended Composer commands they fail.
composer update devel outputs the following.
Package "devel" listed for update is not installed. Ignoring.
Loading composer repositories with package information Updating dependencies (including require-dev) Nothing to install or update
Generating autoload files
When I run
composer require devel, I get this message.
Could not find package devel at any version for your minimum-stability (stable).
Check the package spelling or your minimum-stability.
require [--dev] [--prefer-source] [--prefer-dist] [--no-progress] [--no-suggest] [--no-update] [--no-scripts] [--update-no-dev] [--update-with-dependencies] [--ignore-platform-reqs] [--prefer-stable] [--prefer-lowest] [--sort-packages] [-o|--optimize-autoloader] [-a|--classmap-authoritative] [--apcu-autoloader] [--] [<packages>]...
So what is the problem here?
Composer seems to have installed properly, but I'm surprised these commands aren't working. Maybe it works and I'm not using it correctly.
