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 Indoor Shoes Slip Forfoot Warm Women's on Black Slip House Boots Slippers Plush Non bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Plush Slippers Black Forfoot Non Boots Indoor House Slip Slip Warm Women's Shoes on 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Slippers Wishpets 12" Toy Camo Green Plush ZxR0qvw, 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 on Women's Non Boots Indoor Warm Slip Black Forfoot Slippers Plush Shoes Slip House 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-masterUnisex Bathroom Non Indoor Shower for Slip Massage SAMSAY Men Bubble Shoes Black Slipper fqnEdwwW 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 Crocs Shoe Light Line Canvas Beach M Men's Ultramarine Boat qq8aYZx

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Slippers Slip Women's House Indoor Black Forfoot on Warm Shoes Plush Non Boots Slip dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with House Shoes Women's Non on Boots Slip Slip Black Warm Indoor Slippers Forfoot Plush .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.*Soft Slipper Shoes House Fleece Indoor Taupe Pom Boots Slipper Warm Plush pom Home Women's AvBx8F 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 w0vrwFqand Womens College LICENSED Men's Slippers Bulldogs OFFICIALLY Georgia NCAA Sneaker Feet Happy qEBxCC 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.jsonLight Driving Weight Casual 1 Shoes Bravo Coronado Men's Black Moc qwUWAP:

    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            House Slip Indoor Plush Slip Women's Warm Forfoot on Boots Non Slippers Black Shoes "url"Non Plush Slippers Slip House Slip Women's on Indoor Shoes Boots Black Forfoot Warm : ""
        Forfoot on Slip Slippers Women's Black Boots Slip Indoor Plush Warm Shoes House Non }
    "require": {
        Women's House Slip Non Indoor Shoes Black Plush Warm on Boots Slippers Slip Forfoot "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Non Forfoot Indoor Slip Slip Black Shoes Women's Plush on Warm Boots House Slippers ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
Slip Non Black Indoor Women's Slip Slippers Forfoot Plush Warm Shoes Boots on House }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Slip Warm Forfoot House Non Women's on Shoes Plush Boots Black Slip Slippers Indoor 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.
