Having issue with Facetime camera after Yosemite update. Here is a fix !

The Facetime camera issue happening on Yosemite has boggling quite a long day. Fortunately, there is a workaround for this issue. This happens to be an old issue with older version of Mac OS X, such as Maverick. It is quite simple to workaround this problem.

Step 1: Open “Activity Monitor”

Composer - Speed up PHP Composer install with different protocols

If you found composer is slow at cloning, you can add this to composer.json

// add to config section composer.json
"config": {
    "bin-dir": "bin",
    "process-timeout": "10000",
    "github-protocols": ["https"]

This would change protocol use to clone from git (by default) to https which is much faster.
