Speed up Composer install

Posted by Andy Huggins on February 28, 2016

Here is a package on Github that allows for parallel downloading of packages:

https://github.com/hirak/prestissimo

All you need to do is run this command:

`composer global require hirak/prestissimo`

Once it is installed, Composer should install a new project much faster than before. 

You can configure how many connections you would prefer, but I have found that the default of 6 seems to be pretty good.
