Hosting a Composer repository for private Gitlab projects

Small script that loops through all branches and tags of all projects in a Gitlab installation and if it contains a composer.json, adds it to an index.

This is very similar to the behaviour of Packagist.org

See example.

Usage

Simply include a composer.json in your project, all branches and tags respecting the formats for versions will be detected.

Only requirement is that the package name must be equal to the path of the project. i.e.: my-group/my-project. This is not a design requirement, it is mostly to prevent common errors when you copy a composer.json from another project without without changing its name.

Caveats

While your projects will be protected through SSH, they will be publicly listed. If you require protection of the package list, I suggest this reading.
