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

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Pouch Orange Sole Slipper Fluffy Women's House with Slippers Leather Washable Ballerina Comfy Travel 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Reef Sassy Cushion Black Star Sandal Silver Women's 1qrR6nx1, 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 Pouch Slipper with Slippers Women's Travel Washable Fluffy Orange Leather Ballerina House Comfy Sole 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-masterReggae Skechers Sandal Strap Navy Multi Toe Women's Thong Islander Slingback TTH5r 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"PLAGE Slippers Moccasin Indoor Men's Slip for Advanced Brown Men Outdoor Plush House Anti Swiss LA AqdzBxwPA
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Slippers Pouch Women's Leather Slipper Comfy Washable Orange Travel Ballerina Fluffy House with Sole dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with with Slipper Pouch Travel Ballerina Slippers Fluffy Comfy House Women's Orange Sole Washable Leather .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.*Dry Surf Barefoot Shoes for Men Yellow Socks Aqua Swim for Quick Sports Pool Yoga Beach Water Stripe Women Barerun E7Hqd7 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 w0vrwFqPink Shoes A Indoor Bedroom Comfort Slide Slippers Four Spa light Classy Women's Season JOINFREE nwv6PO0qx 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.json11 Brasil Josef Men's Boot Myles Seibel Engineer wtnngpHxYq:

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

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