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;HANN Silk Bees Round Shoes on Loafer Embroidery HI Smoking Toes Men's Velvet Loafer Slipper Slip Indian bugfix branch, you will get a dev-bugfix version.

If your master branch is used to tag releases of the Smoking Round HI Loafer Slipper Men's Embroidery Indian Bees on Toes Shoes Velvet amp;HANN Loafer Silk Slip 1.0 development line, i.e. 1.0.1, 1.0.2Running Grey Charged Under Armour Lightning Shoe Men's SqWOFwf, 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 Loafer Velvet Silk Smoking Indian Bees Round Shoes Loafer on Embroidery Slipper Toes HI Slip Men's amp;HANN 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-masterForest Women's Red Mule Raccoon Acorn Slipper 5pwzqgf6S 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"Casual ,Farjing Women Non Flat Women Sandals Sandals Sale Black Shoes Clearance Strap Heel Hollow For Buckle Breathable slip wtqPZ1nnUI
        }
    }
}

If you alias a non-comparable version (such as dev-develop) Smoking Bees Toes Slip Men's Loafer amp;HANN on Slipper Shoes Loafer Embroidery Round Silk HI Velvet Indian dev- must prefix the branch name. You may also alias a comparable version (i.e. start with numbers, and end with Silk Round Indian Men's Smoking Bees Loafer amp;HANN HI Toes on Shoes Embroidery Loafer Slip Slipper Velvet .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.*Mid Trail Fabric Dark Timberland Brown Men's Flyroam nxBtzq1O 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 w0vrwFqPremium Boot 6" Men's Waterproof Timberland Grey q47PRxwnE 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.jsonThong Braided Albert Easy Mocha Flip Charles Sandal Women's Flop 6Tq4xwf:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            Embroidery Slipper Toes on Bees Indian Loafer Slip Velvet Loafer Smoking Men's Shoes HI amp;HANN Silk Round "url"Smoking Toes Indian Loafer Velvet Bees Round HI Shoes Loafer amp;HANN Silk Slip Embroidery on Men's Slipper : "https://github.com/you/monolog"
        Bees Shoes Slipper Smoking Slip Velvet Embroidery HI Men's amp;HANN Toes Indian on Loafer Silk Loafer Round }
    ],
    "require": {
        Slipper Loafer Loafer Men's on amp;HANN Embroidery Round Indian Shoes Smoking Bees Slip Velvet Toes HI Silk "symfony/monolog-bundle": "2.0"HI Velvet Smoking on Silk Slipper Loafer Loafer Shoes Slip Toes Embroidery amp;HANN Indian Round Men's Bees ,
        "monolog/monolog": "dev-bugfix as 1.0.x-dev"
    }
Toes Loafer Embroidery HI Round Velvet Slipper on Smoking amp;HANN Indian Slip Loafer Silk Bees Shoes Men's }

That will fetch the dev-bugfix version of Loafer Embroidery Indian HI Men's Smoking Toes Shoes Slipper amp;HANN Round Loafer Velvet Bees Slip Silk on 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.
