I already check for the availability of the module (via a require) before I try to install.

My main problem at the moment is making the installation non-interactive.

    I thought you wanted to avoid automatic updates?

      Yes that is why I do a require first and only when that fails I do the install.

      So when I have the module the require succeeds and I do not run the install.

        And how do you check if the already installed module has the correct version? :)
