Run composer install in CLI to install the latest versions of all three packages in their correct plugin and theme folders. To install specific versions, substitute the * in the JSON file with the version you require.

Using a global config

After the global config is added you can then install any version of any package with a single-line command. Here are a few examples:

  • Standard version: bb-plugin-standard
  • Pro version: bb-plugin-pro

composer require beaver-builder/bb-plugin-pro:2.2.4.5 will install the Pro version 2.2.4.5 of Beaver Builder.

composer require beaver-builder/bb-theme will install the latest version of the Beaver Builder Theme.
