Composer require runs out of memory. PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 1610612736 bytes exhausted

To get the current memory_limit value, run:

php -r "echo ini_get('memory_limit').PHP_EOL;"

Check php configuration file

php --ini

sudo nano /usr/local/etc/php/7.4/php.ini

Try increasing the limit in your php.ini file (ex. /etc/php5/cli/php.ini for Debian-like systems):

; Use -1 for unlimited or define an explicit value like 2G
memory_limit = -1
