With the new composer installer it is possible to specify the path of the document root and also the path of the typo3/cms package.

It can be specified in the extra section of your composer root package like that:

	"repositories": [
		{ "type": "composer", "url": "http://composer.typo3.org/" }
	"name": "typo3/cms-base-distribution",
	"description" : "TYPO3 CMS Base Distribution",
	"license": "GPL-2.0+",
	"config": {
		"vendor-dir": "Packages/Libraries",
		"bin-dir": "bin"
	"require": {
		"typo3/cms": "dev-master"
	"require-dev": {
		"mikey179/vfsStream": "1.3.*@dev",
		"phpunit/phpunit": "~4.4.0",
		"twbs/bootstrap": "3.3.*",
		"fortawesome/font-awesome": "4.2.*"
	"extra": {
		"typo3/cms": {
			"cms-package-dir": "{$vendor-dir}/typo3/cms",
			"web-dir": "web"


When specifying the configuration like mentioned above, the directory structure of a composer install will change.
