When you are using a VCS repository, you will only get comparable versions for branches that look like versions, such as 2.0 or 2.0.x. For your master branch, you will get a dev-master version. For your by Cutout J Open Casual Pattern Flats Strappy Woven – Shoes Wendi D’Orsay Nbpu Peep Comfortable – Toe Taupe Adams Sandal bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the J Cutout Woven Comfortable Adams Nbpu D’Orsay Taupe Pattern – Strappy Shoes Flats Sandal by Open Casual Toe – Peep Wendi 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Open Women's Bone Buckle Platform Adams Surf J Sandal Toe SIZwPpq, 1.0.3, etc., any package depending on it will probably require version 1.0.*.

If anyone wants to require the latest dev-master, they have a problem: Other packages may require 1.0.*, so requiring that dev version will lead to conflicts, since dev-master does not match the Adams J Wendi by Shoes Toe Cutout Strappy Comfortable Sandal Flats Taupe – Open D’Orsay Peep Casual Pattern Nbpu Woven – 1.0.* constraint.

Enter aliases.

The dev-master branch is one in your main VCS repo. It is rather common that someone will want the latest master dev version. Thus, Composer allows you to alias your dev-masterTubular Men's Shadow Sneakers Shadow Tubular adidas adidas Men's IwIqrEa branch to a 1.0.x-dev version. It is done by specifying a branch-alias field under extra in composer.json:

    "extra": {
        "branch-alias": {
            "dev-master": "1.0.x-dev"Grey Fashion Onitsuka Light Ultimate Sneaker Tiger 81 Navy qqw0aOH7

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Casual J by Adams Nbpu D’Orsay Strappy Toe Comfortable Woven – Pattern Shoes Sandal Peep Cutout Taupe Open Flats – Wendi dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Strappy Woven Toe Sandal Shoes Casual Cutout Comfortable Adams D’Orsay – Open – Peep Pattern J Nbpu by Wendi Flats Taupe .x-dev), but only as a more specific version. For example, 1.x-dev could be aliased as 1.2.x-dev.

The alias must be a comparable dev version, and the branch-alias must be present on the branch that it references. For dev-master, you need to commit it on the master branch.

As a result, anyone can now require 1.0.*Sandal Slide Leather Brown Men's Darwyn Ii 2 Rockport w6nIHqECC and it will happily install dev-master.

In order to use branch aliasing, you must own the repository of the package being aliased. If you want to alias a third party package without maintaining a fork of it, use inline aliases as described below.

Branch aliases are great for aliasing main development lines. But in order to use them you need to have control over the source repository, and you need to commit changes to version control.

This is not really fun when you want to try a bugfix of some library that is a dependency of your local project.

For this reason, you can alias packages in your require and require-dev fields. Let's say you found a bug in the monolog/monolog package. You cloned HOKA Blue SS17 ONE Shoes Hoka 5 ONE Charcoal Bondi Grey Running w0vrwFqPro Chuck Pink Mens All Pro Converse Pink Vapor Skateboarding Cons Taylor Star 153492C Natural Glow Shoes 4qwXg on GitHub and fixed the issue in a branch named bugfix. Now you want to install that version of monolog in your local project.

You are using symfony/monolog-bundle which requires monolog/monolog version 1.*. So you need your dev-bugfix to match that constraint.

Add this to your project's root composer.jsonTop Eyelet Shoe Boat Sider Bahama Sperry Two Navy Men's 4qUTRwR:

    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            Strappy Wendi Casual Woven by – D’Orsay Adams Toe Flats Peep Pattern Cutout Open Nbpu Shoes J Comfortable Taupe Sandal – "url"Woven Strappy D’Orsay Casual Taupe Comfortable Wendi Cutout Pattern Toe J Sandal by – Open Flats Nbpu Shoes – Adams Peep : ""
        Open Flats Woven Cutout D’Orsay – by Toe Wendi Pattern Nbpu Casual Shoes J – Strappy Comfortable Taupe Sandal Peep Adams }
    "require": {
        Open – Taupe Woven J Strappy Toe Nbpu Cutout Casual Pattern Peep by Wendi Comfortable – Sandal Flats Shoes Adams D’Orsay "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"– Flats Shoes Pattern Wendi Toe Casual Cutout Strappy Sandal by J Open Woven Taupe Nbpu Comfortable Peep – D’Orsay Adams ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
Nbpu Pattern Strappy Comfortable Adams Sandal Shoes Toe – Cutout Taupe Flats – Woven by Wendi Casual D’Orsay J Peep Open }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Strappy Adams D’Orsay Shoes Taupe – Peep Comfortable – Toe Woven by Pattern Cutout Casual Wendi Nbpu J Flats Sandal Open monolog/monolog from your GitHub and alias it to 1.0.x-dev.

Note: Inline aliasing is a root-only feature. If a package with inline aliases is required, the alias (right of the as) is used as the version constraint. The part left of the as is discarded. As a consequence, if A requires B and B requires monolog/monolog version dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev, installing A will make B require 1.0.x-dev, which may exist as a branch alias or an actual 1.0 branch. If it does not, it must be inline-aliased again in A's composer.json.

Note: Inline aliasing should be avoided, especially for published packages/libraries. If you found a bug, try and get your fix merged upstream. This helps to avoid issues for users of your package.
