To fix the issue you can do I wanted to create a web app using node.js as a server and Ionic Framework as front-end framework, and finally run this everything on AWS ElasticBeasntalk Ionic is written with AngularJS (very useful free course by CodeSchool). AngularJS is a library, which you upload to user's browser including it as There is no need to install it on the server environment.
wish of those help It runs composer.phar install on every deploy. If you put your composer.lock file into your repository and don't change it, nothing will be installed on your server. Beside that if you want to update your dependencies, first install them on your local/deployment machine and if everything is fine push your composer.lock file as well.
