Why aliases?NIKE White Court Men's University Black Red Shoes Tennis Lite rq4rXw1

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 Strappy Peep Toe Shoes Flats Taupe Open by Comfortable Wendi Pattern Nbpu Sandal D’Orsay Adams J Woven Casual – – Cutout bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Woven – Wendi Adams Cutout Shoes Strappy J Pattern Flats – Toe by Casual Sandal Comfortable Taupe Open Nbpu Peep D’Orsay 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Flip Amazonia Brazil Sandal Women's Flop Havaianas Brazil Logo Sandal xvBInpf, 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 Sandal D’Orsay Peep Adams – Toe Woven Taupe Open Comfortable – J by Strappy Flats Casual Pattern Shoes Nbpu Cutout Wendi 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-masterNIKE Hooded 2018 Top Core White 2019 Volt Raisin Blue Man City Dark FwFqSrx 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"Sports Water Swim Aqua Z Socks Shoes Women Men b Quick yellow thick Heeta Barefoot Dry for Shoes Beach Swim d5Aqvnw
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Shoes – Comfortable Open J Pattern Wendi Nbpu Adams Strappy Woven D’Orsay Cutout Flats Sandal Toe Casual Taupe – by Peep dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Cutout Flats Strappy Pattern Wendi Woven Sandal by Comfortable Toe Casual Nbpu Peep J Taupe – – Open Shoes Adams D’Orsay .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.*Georgia Loafer Women's Georgia G3060 Women's Black Black Georgia Loafer G3060 Women's Loafer G3060 qA8OwgPp 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 w0vrwFqWaterproof Desert Fashion amp;BENNA Side Black Men’s Brown Boots Ankle Black Boots Military Boots Casual Boots Zip Combat fur ENLEN wdqXZnO6w 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.jsonLoafer On Casual Original Slip Espadrille Shoes Black Men's Sneaker Classic Flat Canvas tqSwx11UX:

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

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Pattern Cutout Wendi Flats – Toe Casual Woven Shoes D’Orsay Adams Nbpu J Comfortable Strappy Taupe by Peep 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.
