    Hey guys,

    image I have a composer file like this:

        "name": "plugin/plugin",
        "description": "Plugin",
        "type": "project",
        "require": {
            "pocketmine/pocketmine-mp": "^3.22.1",
            "joshcam/mysqli-database-class": "^2.9.3",
            "ext-mysqli": "*"
        "autoload": {
            "psr-4": {
                "Plugin\\Plugin\\": "src/"
    Using these dependencies is no problem in my IDE, but when I put the source files to my local plugins folder of my server, it cannot find the mysqli stuff I added in the composer.json. I just drag and drop my src + plugin.yml and using devtools - so I'm not converting my plugin into a phar or something like that. What step do I miss? I've a lot of experience in JavaScript...and there we have the package.json (the npm stuff) - I think its pritty similar.

    I mean of course it cannot find these dependencies, since the mysqli sources aren't in the plugins folder of the server. Do I need to download the sources of mysqli and put this into my plugins folder? I already tried this out, but it didnt work. I'd like to use more dependecies for my plugin, not only msqli. Just a side note.

    I've also basic knowledge in Java + if someone is familar with this, you can also explain it to me in the java + maven-way :D

    Thanks in advance.
