Applying a Github patch to a contrib module?

How do I apply a patch from GitHub to a contributed module in Drupal?

  1. Obtain the URL of the patch file, for example:

  2. Insert the patch URL into your composer.json file under the “patches” section. If the section doesn’t exist, you can create it like so:

“extra”: {
“patches”: {
“module_name_for_patch”: {
“patch_name”: “Patch_URL”

  1. Execute the command composer install.
  2. The patch will be applied during the installation process.
