Pulling my own private repository from Bitbucket via Composer

I have a big library that is hosted on Bitbucket as a private repository. I use this library for a lot of projects of mine.

I am having a trouble updating my library in each project where it’s used whenever I do some changes, therefore I’d like to simply put it in the composer.json file of each project, then use composer update to pull the newest version.

    First set up ssh for git: https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/set-up-ssh-for-git-728138079.html

    In your composer.json of the project where you want to require the repository add the following:

    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            "url": "git@bitbucket.org:some_name/some_repository.git",
            "reference": "develop"

    Then in you can simply require it:

    "vendor/projectname": "*@dev"

    Note that the repository you are requiring should also have its own composer.json, the name set for the package there must match the name of the package you are including (vendor/projectname in my example above).
