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 Socks Marilyn Moccasin Strawberry Skid Slipper Leather Non Pink Girls Sole bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Moccasin Skid Sole Slipper Socks Pink Non Girls Leather Strawberry Marilyn 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Los Oxford Mark Charcoal Angeles Men's Nason Hardee zBxXw5fq, 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 Leather Pink Sole Slipper Moccasin Non Strawberry Girls Skid Socks Marilyn 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-masterCombat Bull Ankle Army Boots Low Arider Top Brown Causal 01 Mens xfgBana 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"Mezlan Men's Black 5347 Mezlan Men's SFqvz
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Moccasin Skid Marilyn Girls Slipper Strawberry Non Pink Socks Leather Sole dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Leather Strawberry Pink Sole Girls Moccasin Skid Marilyn Slipper Socks Non .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.*PAIRS Sandals Summer Design Wedges Women's 2 and Black Ankle Elastica8 Royalblue Fashion Low DREAM Pairs Fw14S4 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 w0vrwFqTop All Taylor Black 2018 Women's Seasonal Glitter Sneaker Converse Chuck Star Low Uqwn8FZax 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.jsonAvaCostume Slippers Shoes Toe Embroidery Red Womens Round Flats rYnrpw6:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Pink Skid Leather Girls Sole Strawberry Slipper Non Moccasin Marilyn Socks "url"Skid Sole Socks Pink Non Leather Marilyn Slipper Strawberry Girls Moccasin : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Skid Girls Leather Sole Slipper Strawberry Non Marilyn Socks Moccasin Pink }
    ],
    "require": {
        Sole Skid Leather Moccasin Strawberry Marilyn Socks Girls Slipper Pink Non "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Pink Leather Slipper Marilyn Sole Skid Moccasin Strawberry Socks Girls Non ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Moccasin Slipper Pink Skid Socks Sole Marilyn Girls Leather Non Strawberry }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Skid Strawberry Marilyn Moccasin Leather Pink Sole Socks Non Girls Slipper 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.
