How to place the ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory in your PATH

To put this folder on the PATH environment variable type

export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"

This appends the folder to your existing PATH, however, it is only active for your current terminal session.

If you want it to be automatically set, it depends on the shell you are using. For bash you can append this line to $HOME/.bashrc using your favourite editor or type the following on the shell

echo 'export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"'>> ~/.bashrc 

In order to check if it worked, logout and login again or execute

source ~/.bashrc

on the shell.

PS: For other systems where there is no  ~/.bashrc, you can also put this into ~/.bash_profile
