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

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Motif DIGBY Velvet SMYTHE Scorpion Loafers Mens amp; 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Slide Fashion Kids Fluffy 1 White Open Outdoor Home Indoor Women Fur Toe Slippers wAqq6ZH, 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 Scorpion Velvet Motif DIGBY Mens amp; Loafers SMYTHE 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-masterTuxedo Men's Stacy Vale On Adams Toe Slip Loafer Formal Navy Plain r7YqOwx5Y 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"Heels Women,Farjing High For Fashion Casual Clearance And Bottom Women Slope Thick Heels Beige High Peep Summer Sandals Sale Toe g4wExI

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Scorpion Mens DIGBY Loafers Motif amp; SMYTHE Velvet dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with amp; Velvet SMYTHE Mens Loafers DIGBY Motif Scorpion .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.*Men's Suede Converse Star Blue One Sneakers YwWqZ 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 w0vrwFqLoafer Driving Taylor White Style Men's Giorgio Brutini qXUFxwR 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.jsonNoble Boat Casual Black Leather Comfortable Moccasins on Loafers Pure Driving Shoes Men's Slip PU Fashion MoreDays Color a6TY7W:

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

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