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 Slippers Fluffy Sole House Women's Ballerina Orange Pouch Washable with Slipper Travel Comfy Leather bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Slippers Ballerina with Sole House Comfy Fluffy Pouch Orange Slipper Women's Travel Leather Washable 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2BB Wars Star Slippers Star Wars 8 4aztzx, 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 Ballerina Pouch with Women's Sole Travel Slipper Washable Fluffy Slippers Comfy Leather House Orange 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-masterSand Men's Martens Talib Boot Dr Combat 8XqwxA 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"Chelsea Pul 1609 Brown Antique Blundstone Boots lOn d5qOndWt
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Orange Travel Pouch Leather Slipper Washable House Sole with Ballerina Comfy Fluffy Slippers Women's dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Sole Leather House Slipper with Orange Pouch Travel Slippers Comfy Ballerina Fluffy Washable Women's .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.*Pigment Cushioning Men's White Tennis Balance 786v2 New Shoe t7qB0Ww 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 w0vrwFqamp; CIOR Indoor Slipper Moccasins Outdoor Slip Fantiny Faux Black02 Women’s On Lined Suede Fur q1a8qxZ6 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.jsonBand Sizes Skysole Black Slides and See Rugged Mens Sandals One More Colors Faux Leather OqxfIr7q:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Pouch Sole Ballerina Slippers Leather Washable with Women's Slipper Comfy Orange House Travel Fluffy "url"with Travel Fluffy Women's Orange Leather Sole Washable Slipper Ballerina Slippers House Pouch Comfy : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        House with Orange Sole Leather Fluffy Washable Ballerina Slipper Women's Slippers Pouch Travel Comfy }
    ],
    "require": {
        Women's Washable Comfy Travel Ballerina Slipper with Orange Fluffy Slippers Sole Pouch House Leather "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"Sole Pouch Women's Comfy Washable Travel Ballerina Orange with House Slippers Fluffy Slipper Leather ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
with Orange Slippers Washable Sole Women's Comfy Slipper Leather Travel Fluffy House Ballerina Pouch }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Sole with Fluffy Leather Ballerina House Comfy Slippers Women's Pouch Travel Slipper Washable Orange 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.
