Set The Memory Limit In Composer

When working on a large application when using composer you can sometimes hit an error that you exhausted the memory limit of composer.

PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of XXXXXX bytes exhausted <...>

You can resolve this by increasing the PHP memory_limit.

But if you don't want to increase the PHP memory_limit but still want to increase the memory usage to composer you can use another environment variable of COMPOSER_MEMORY_LIMIT which can be used as below.

COMPOSER_MEMORY_LIMIT=-1 composer install
