When to Commit Composer Vendor Files to a Version Control System

I understand that I should not include the composer vendor folder when committing a project to a version control system. I also understand that I should include the composer.lock file when committing to a VCS.

That said, I would like to know if I should commit the the composer.json file to VCS as well.

Hey Mister M. - Yes in my opinion you should commit both. The composer.json file determines your dependencies and version ranges. The composer.lock file determines that actual dependency and version installed.

Hope that helps.
