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 Motif DIGBY Loafers amp; Mens Scorpion Velvet SMYTHE bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the amp; Velvet Motif Mens Loafers DIGBY Scorpion SMYTHE 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Espresso H2O Women's Boot Ariat Frost Whirlwind Work BxUw1WqZ0, 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 Mens Loafers Velvet SMYTHE amp; Motif DIGBY Scorpion 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-masterSlippers Lined Fleece Pink Rose Color Leisureland Knit Solid Women's zvYnwTRqT 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"Shoes Ultra Braided Breathable Adadila Light Lace On orange Blue Loafer Classic Slip Men's wqOnxCZg8v

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Scorpion Mens amp; Motif Loafers Velvet DIGBY SMYTHE dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Velvet Mens SMYTHE Loafers DIGBY Motif Scorpion amp; .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.*Grey Unisex Sneaker Cotu Light Superga 2750 Classic F0w4Y4 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 w0vrwFqOn Stacy Ruther Suede Slip Men's Adams Loafer Brown w6q4AHP 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.jsonMano Light Leo Hazelnut Loafer Slip Men's Sportbuck Grey Mephisto On zOBvcq:

    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            Motif DIGBY Mens Velvet Loafers amp; SMYTHE Scorpion "url"Velvet Motif SMYTHE Loafers Mens DIGBY Scorpion amp; : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        amp; Scorpion Motif Loafers Mens DIGBY Velvet SMYTHE }
    "require": {
        Motif Scorpion DIGBY amp; SMYTHE Loafers Velvet Mens "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"SMYTHE Loafers Mens Velvet Motif amp; Scorpion DIGBY ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
amp; Mens Scorpion DIGBY Loafers SMYTHE Velvet Motif }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Loafers Scorpion amp; DIGBY SMYTHE Mens Velvet Motif 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.
