Question about --no-scripts in composer deploy hook

I have been experimenting with composer-merge-plugin ( and it does not work with --no-scripts argument in the composer deploy hook. I am wondering if I will run into any major problems by removing this flag.

I am using this plugin so I can define a composer.local.json for plugins specific to each of my sites, but still use a main composer.json to set PHP version, WordPress version, etc. This will mean I can pull from bedrock upstream and have less merge conflicts in my composer file to deal with.

Nope, go ahead and remove it. It’s just a default for production.
