Fedora doesn't have composer in its official repository or RPMFusion. It seems that Shawn Iwinski is interested in getting this packaged into fedora repo. He talks about this in Fedora-php-devel-list.

He did some work on getting composer packaged into an RPM and you can see it on GitHub. It seems that he is maintaining a repo for composer and its configuration file for yum is available here: (I would like to note that, I haven't tested this.)

Or you can manually install it using the following commands:

$ curl -sS | php
$ sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

This will install composer on '/usr/local/bin' and you can access composer via the command composer

$ composer --version

You can update composer with the following command:

$ sudo /usr/local/bin/composer --self-update

The repo in fedora-people is currently empty. There are no actual built packages there. I had some luck with installing from Shawn's COPR here: . though there is a package only for EPEL 6, it seemed to work well on Fedora.

The option to self-update the composer is self-update, not --self-update. At least with the version I have: Composer version 1.0-dev (c8c452de13f626ab105c5414f05302a2cbcd8a75) 2015-05-10 14:20:27.
