Notes

18-October-2014: Tried installing Yii 2.0 by following these instructions, but got the following error when trying to run composer global require "fxp/composer-asset-plugin:1.0.0-beta3":

PHP Fatal error:  Class 'Composer\Installer\InstallerEvents' not found in /Users/dlcmh/.composer/vendor/fxp/composer-asset-plugin/FxpAssetPlugin.php on line 65

Fatal error: Class 'Composer\Installer\InstallerEvents' not found in /Users/dlcmh/.composer/vendor/fxp/composer-asset-plugin/FxpAssetPlugin.php on line 65

A tip at the Error installing composer-asset-plugin discussion thread suggested running composer self-update to correct the issue - this worked out beautifully in my situation.
