It seems to me that the hardcore devs thinks composer is the way to go for installing and updating Silverstripe. I would really like to understand how it works. But it's so geeky, that it really needs some more descriptive documentation - perhaps screenrecordings or so - for some of us to understand.
Perhaps it's time for someone who know how to use composer to create some videos, showing how to install the framework and CMS, and then vidoes showing how to add modules, updating and so on.
I hope someone will spend some time helping me and others to understand composer :o)
If you think the needed documentation is out there, please write a list of content that you would recommend me and others to read.
Dev team: please take into account, when you add complexity to Silverstripe - you are making new people less likely to choose Silverstripe.
SilverStripe is not only been used by hardcore PHP devs, but also frontenders like me, who are not comfortable with the console.
